The Ghost Train is a classic British comedy film from 1941. The movie stars Arthur Askey as Tommy Gander, a musician and comedian, and Richard Murdoch as Ted Holmes, a journalist. The film is directed by Walter Forde and based on a play written by Arnold Ridley. The story takes place in a remote railway station in Cornwall, where a group of passengers are stranded overnight after missing the last train out. They are forced to spend the night in the waiting room, which is said to be haunted by the ghost of a train that crashed many years ago.

As the night wears on, strange and eerie events begin to take place. The passengers, already on edge and sleep-deprived, become convinced that the station is cursed and that they will never make it out alive. Tommy and Ted, however, are convinced that there is a rational explanation for everything, and set out to solve the mystery.

Along the way, they encounter a colorful cast of characters, including a spinster (played by Kathleen Harrison), a newlywed couple, and a German doctor. The film is full of witty one-liners, physical comedy, and hilarious misunderstandings.

The climax of the movie takes place when the mysterious ghost train finally arrives at the station, throwing the passengers into a state of panic. Tommy and Ted must use their wits to prevent a disaster and uncover the truth behind the ghostly apparitions.

Overall, The Ghost Train is a charming and lighthearted comedy that has stood the test of time. The film is a classic of British cinema and remains a beloved favorite to this day. Arthur Askey's performance as the bumbling but lovable Tommy Gander is particularly memorable, and the film's quirky humor makes it a must-see for fans of classic comedies.
