Ghost Train Phenomena: Train that Run Without Driver

Trains are the most popular transportation, especially for long-distance travelers. Besides being fast to the destination, prices are also cheaper compared to buses. The train can run if controlled by a machinist. But, in some cases, the phenomenon of trains running alone without machinists has occurred. The train rolled without direction, seriously endangering railroad traffic and surrounding communities. This type of train is often called a ghost train. People believe the train is controlled by an invisible creature. Below are a number of cases of road trains themselves which are still puzzles to this day.

1 | Lori, who fled from Bogor to Jakarta


On September 9, 2016, a crane transport truck from Bogor drove itself without a driver to Jakarta. This phenomenon caused a collision with a freight train in the Cilebut-Bojonggede area. Luckily there were no fatalities in this incident, due to the condition of the empty train. There is only a small crinkle on the freight train. Because it happened at midnight, many people thought of it as the ghost of the train occupants. But the issue was pushed aside by the head of the public relations department 1. He said the cause of the train rolling itself was due to the decreasing road conditions from Bogor to Jakarta. But the statement cannot explain the real cause and there has been no trial in the field.

The locomotive was unable to brake and continued to run until finally, he himself fainted until he reached the Manggarai station.

This train has traveled 21 kilometers from Kundian to Mianwali Pakistan without a driver. Initially, the train was being repaired but accidentally moved without cause. They thought the train had been repaired and was heading to the next stop. A few minutes later they realized that there was no driver in the wheelhouse and full of cargo. They immediately contacted the Mianwali station to lock the train line. Finally, the train can stop even if it's too far from the station. The moving train itself is estimated to be caused by an electrical system error when repaired. But it is not yet clear how the incident actually damaged electricity itself. Could it have been destroyed by an unseen creature? nobody knows.
