A ghost train makes trips over the Poltava region
On July 14, 1911, a tourist train arranged for rich Italians sent out to cruise from the Rome railway station. More than one hundred passengers saw sights located along the new rail way section. The train came up to a very long tunnel. And suddenly something terrible began to take place. According to the two passengers managing to jump out on the run, everything got suddenly covered with a white fog that became more and more thickened and grew into a viscid liquid while the train approached the tunnel. The train entered the tunnel and ... disappeared.
After this occurrence the tunnel was stuffed with stones, and in the wartime an air bomb hit it.
That incident would be probably forgotten if the phantom didn’t appear not far from Poltava at a railway crossing over. The train with the curtains tightly closed and operator's cab empty moved absolutely noiseless while smashing the hens walking over the tracks.
Chairman of the Board for Study of the Anomalous Phenomena Vasyl’ Petrovych Leschatyi arrived to explore this phenomenon. He suggested the train passed through the time in some way. Leschatyi found the records of the well known Mexican psychiatrist Jose Saxino from the middle of 19 century about once upon a time 104 Italians had appeared in Mexico City stating that they were arriving to Mexico City from Rome by train.
On September 25, 1991, Vasyl’ Petrovych Leschatyi caught the enigma train at the same crossing over near Poltava. He jumped on the footboard of the ghost and ... nobody saw him anymore. And the train has been still going about over the Poltava region.
