Fear Trains! Photographer Micky Vermooch Captures Spooky Image Of Ghost Used On Same Train In Harry Potter Films

A photographer, Micky Vermooch, 63, from Scarborough, North Yorks, has captured the ghostly image of a girl while he was partying on the train used in the Harry Potter films.

According to Micky, he went for a 1940sthemed party on the train and then he started taking photos with his phone. What he saw in the photos, left him speechless because there were no children at the time. He said:


“I got my mobile phone out and took a few photos of the carriage we were in.

“Then the train stopped and we got off.

“I was looking through the pictures when I suddenly saw the photo with this girl on it.

“I couldn’t believe it. There had been no children in that carriage at all. In fact I didn’t see any children on the train.”

Micky then went to look for the train staff and showed them the spooky image. When he did, they were all just as shocked as he was. He said:

“They’d never seen anything like it. They were shocked.

“I found an official photographer and said ‘what about this, I’ve just taken it’. He was flabbergasted. He said the light was like ahologram.


“He couldn’t explain the picture. It’s captured the spirit beautifully. We are all in shock and delight.

“To capture a spirit like that is phenomenal. I’m over the moon.”

According to Micky, the train was on the line run by the North York Moors Historical Railway Trust, from Goathland to Grosmont, that was used in the Harry Potter movies.

Micky belies the spirit to be that of a girl who probably died during the Second World War. He said:

“I had a feeling she must have died in a bombing or something like that – something to do with that train or the carriage during the war years.

“I feel she died at a young age because of something to do with a wartime activity.

“There were a lot of people in period costume in that carriage.

“Maybe it was the particular time of year that triggered the spirit and brought her back.”
