I have seen on another site someone stated that a ghostly CEP was sometimes seen running late at night at Marden, no driver but passengers, could this whole 'ghost train' concept hold water or has someone simply observed the 'Friday only after the pub shut service', incidently in the 1960s a CEP was destroyed at Marden and its driver sadly died.

Sounds a bit like the ghostly AEC RT double-decker bus that careers along Oxford St (London) late at night then vanishes at the point where the German bomb obliterated it near Regents' St. A story everyone's heard of but nobody's seen for themselves.

Probably a misunderstanding that has escalated over the years.

The person originally said.

"I saw one of those ghastly CEPs running late last night."

Ah, yes. Due to cost-cutting, a few members of staff have literally been axed by Southeastern, who thus now operate some services under Ghost-Only Operation (GOO). I'm afraid I forgot to post the thread about this.

Geordie in exile.
Any RIPs RPIs out checking tickets?

Not that I want to make light of such an apparent loss of life. No offence meant....:cry:
