Ghosts of the Queen Mary

On May 27, 1936, the RMS Queen Mary set sail from Southampton, England, completing her maiden voyage in New York City just a few days later. For the next three years, the ship was the height of luxury, transporting such notable passengers as Clark Cable, Bob Hope, Elizabeth Taylor, and Winston Churchill. Its elaborate facilities included two indoor swimming pools, beauty salons, libraries, tennis courts, and more. However, the luxurious amenities didn’t last.

In 1939, the Queen Mary was stripped down and began service as a World War II troop transport ship. For the next eight years, the ship hauled tens of thousands of servicemen across the sea, earning the nickname the Grey Ghost due to its color and speed. After the war ended, the Queen Mary was refitted for passenger travel and again served as a luxury liner until retiring from service in 1967.

Now permanently moored in Long Beach, California, the Queen Mary serves as a popular tourist attraction, complete with restaurants, a museum, and a hotel. Legend has it the historic ship is also haunted by the men, women, and children who died aboard.

Ghost Photo: King of the Castle

Taken at England’s Barnard Castle, this photo shows a white figure lurking near the fortress’s stone walls. Could it be a ghost?

Construction of Barnard Castle began in 1095, and the ancient castle was once a favorite of King Richard III. Today, it is an English Heritage site. Video from an adjoining pub allegedly shows “orbs, figures, faces, spectral movement, and all manners of weird going on.” Check it out here.

Reader Submission: The Haunted Train Station

“One day, my friends and I were down at a local park that was surrounded by woods. There was a small clearing where a fence guarded the railway tracks. Over the tracks, was a small building that we thought was a abandoned station; it was clearly not in use. All of the windows were shattered, and the roof was starting to cave in. However, we could see shapes moving inside. We eventually decided they were reflections, even though they moved differently.

The next summer we decided to get a look, so we crossed the quiet railway and headed toward the building. As soon as we came near, we got the feeling that someone was watching us. When we entered the building, we saw strange scratch marks on the walls. Then we suddenly heard a strange whisper followed by a massive bang as something fell over. We all ran away as fast as we could. There’s no telling what it was, and we’ll never know, because we’ve haven’t been near the building again and never plan to go back!”
