IWas Talkin To Davidd The Other Night && We Was Plannin On What Stories To Write For Next Year.. Davidd Said He Pure Luvs Me Ghost Stories && That I Need To Do More After Christmas.. Then He Asked If I Knew That James Street Station Is Haunted.. I Was Lyk What Do Ya Mean?? Davidd Said That James Street Station In Liverpool Is Supposed To Be The Most Haunted Railway Station In The Whole Of England.. I Know It Is Dead Old && Was One Of The First Train Stations In Liverpool.. Before They Built The Railway Tunnel Under The River Mersey, It Was The End Of The Line Where Everyone Got Off && Got The Ferry Boat To Birkenhead.. Bt I Never Knew It Was Haunted.. So Davidd Told Me A Story That Was A Bit Lyk My Ghost At Kirkby Station.. I Was Lyk OMG, I Wonder If It Is The Same Ghost And He Goes On A Little Mission Round Merseyside On The Train..
Davidd Told Me That Billy Butler Used To Hve Ghost Story Writer Tom Slemen On His Radio Show On Radio Merseyside Every Week.. People Used To Write In With Stories About Ghosts && Tom Slemen Used To Tell Everyone Stories Frm His Books Or That He Was Investigatin At The Time.. One Week Billy Butler Got A Letter Frm One Of His Listeners Who Was A School Lollipop Man Near Penny Lane In Liverpool.. The Lollipop Man Said In His Letter That He Was On A Train In James Street In 1995.. The Lollipop Man Was Goin To The Wirral At 10 O’Clock In The Mornin When He Saw A Man Dressed Up Lyk A First World War Army Officer In His Train Carriage.. They Were Makin A War Film In Liverpool At The Time && The Lollipop Man Thought That Perhaps He Was An Actor Or Extra Frm The Film.. The Lollipop Man Said That He Looked Weird Though, Lyk He Was Flat Lyk A Cardboard Cutout..
The Army Man Got Off The Train At James Street && Marched Along The Platform.. Wierd Thing Though, He Was Walking The Wrong Way.. He Wasnt Walking Towards The Exit, He Walked Towards Part Of The Station That Is Out Of Bounds To Passengers At The End Of The Platform Where The Tunnel Leads To The Wirral.. He Was Carryin A Baton In His Hand && Then He Walked Towards A Brick Wall && Walked Straight Through It.. The Lollipop Man && Two Other People Saw This && Just Watched It Lyk They Couldnt Believe It.. “I Wasnt Scarred,” The Lollipop Man Wrote In His Letter, “Just Totally Shocked!!”
Later That Year, The Lollipop Man Saw It Happen Again When The Ghostly Army Man Repeated His Vanishin Act, In Front Of Loads Of Passengers This Time.. He Wrote To The Liverpool Echo && They Put A Small Story About The Ghost Sayin That Travellers On The Wirral Line Had Seen A Soldier Disappear Into A Wall On The Underground..
After The Second Time He Saw Him, The Lollipop Man Drew A Picture Of The Ghostly Soldier..
Its Easy To Make Out That The Lollipop Man Was Just A Nut Who Made Up Stories About This Soldier Bt Both Times He Was Not Alone && Other People Also Saw The Officer.. There Are A Couple Of Things That Make His Story A Bit More Believeable Too.. The Echo Did A Search Through Their Records && Found An Old Story Frm 1919 About An Army Officer Who Died In James Street Station Just After The First World War.. No One Knew If It Was A Suicide Or Just An Accident.. They Did Find A Photograph Of The Army Officer Though && When They Looked At It He Looked Just Lyk The Drawin The Lollipop Man Made..
Somebody At Merseyrail Also Came Forward && Said That Where The Officer Walked Through The Wall Was Where The Exit To The Station Used To Be Years Ago Before The Station Was Altered In The 1980s..
It Is Easy To Just Laugh At These Old Stories Bt They Do Make Ya Think..
