Ghost Train Adventures

#1 Postby The Stray » Mon Aug 20, 2012 11:45 pm

I seem to remember some adventures involving ghost trains, but I'm having a hard time calling them to mind. What adventures involving ghost trains are there in the Deadlands canon?

Back East: The North has a ghost train in Chicago. This is mentioned in the first part of Murder on the Hellstromme Express.

Rascals, Varmints & Critters has the Union Pride ghost train. (Not an adventure, but a mention)

Saddle Sore has the Journey o' the Nightingale as one of its short adventures.

Then there's the Night Train. Which would be nicer if if were ghosts. :twisted:

Yeah, I think Night Train and For Whom The Whistle Blows is a bit too much for my party.

The specific adventure I'm thinking of has the party "rescued" and allowed on a creepy conveyance, which will let them ride for free...provided they undertake a task for the conductor. It's not quite Journey of the nightingale...and in fact I'm not even sure if it's Deadlands or another setting that has trains, or even a whole other setting entirely that could be easily converted.

I thought it might be Deadlands because that's such a Deadlands game, but Journey o' the Nightingale doesn't have any sort of tasks...it's just atmosphere.
