Presenter Frances Dodge inherits a ghost train from her grandmother and with the help of co-presenters Paul J Medford and Sabra Williams, she sneaks the train from the grasp of the evil Barry Mafia (Joe Hall) and makes her escape.
Inside the ghost train, they find startled Gerard (Angelo Abela) and a camp talking sheep, named Nobby (a puppet operated and voiced by Simon Buckley). Barry Mafia is constantly trying to get his hands on the ghost train, aided by the Mafia-ettes.
Frances, Paul and Sabra, meanwhile, use the ghost train as a platform to host special guests, feature live performances from musical artists and groups, and introduce cartoon segments, including Scooby-Doo, The Trap Door and The Real Ghostbusters.
A spin-off series – Ghost Train on Sunday – was produced in 1989 by Border Television and presented by Shauna Lowry.
