Henry and the Ghost Train is a mini book.
One of the attractions at a new fairground is a ghost train. Henry's driver explains a ghost train is a train that rides through a tunnel and frightens the riders with spooky things. Henry scoffs at the ideas of spooks, but does not want to meet one.
Later Henry is taking some workmen to investigate a tunnel with a fallen roof when his tender derails. Henry falls asleep waiting for help, but wakes up to be frightened by a ghost. Henry puffs away, but then encounters a skeleton crew, a Very Thin Controller, a vampire, and a ghostly Gordon.
Henry wakes to find he was dreaming, but decides not to tell anyone.
