Fact Check:

A weird and ‘spooky’ video is doing rounds online alleging to show a Ghost Train Caught on CCTV at Baotou Railway Station of China. The short clipping appears to show a real ghost train arriving on the platform and leaving, showing transparent cars and cloudy headlights. No, the paranormal claims are not true.

About Video of Ghost Train Caught on CCTV Camera

The claim in question became popular and viral online after YouTube channel ‘The Hidden Underbelly 2.0’ published the clip in mid-March 2018 with below description:

This footage was sent to me with the following information. This footage was capture on March 10, 2018 and when the station’s security where watching the surveillance cameras they noticed this ” Ghost Train ” pull into the station and stop as if it was picking up passengers and then leaving.. My source said that in the 12 years he has worked there he has never seen anything like this before and hopes he never does again….

Seeing the unusual sight allegedly from CCTV footage, some viewers in fact came up with strange explanations. While some said it could be a parallel universe overlapping, others said it’s an invisible cloak meta material military experiment. However, YouTube channel The Hidden Underbelly 2.0 publishes many paranormal videos about UFOs and Ghosts among others.

Different Claims

On the other hand, we have seen a larger footage of the video appeared online earlier with other claims going back to as far as year 2013. Some said the video shows a Ghost train in Moscow metro of Russia, caught on a security cam. Others said it is from London underground.

Despite the various claims and paranormal attributions, the video is not from China. It is from Moscow Metro Station Polezhayevskaya probably from year 2012. Back then the video appeared on YouTube as ‘Ghost train’ – in Comedy section. There are also some clear signs of video editing and effects. When Express.co.uk website showed the footage to Scott Brando, he said the fake CCTV footage is made by overlapping two different videos from the same security camera.

So, the messages claiming to show the video shows a ghost train caught on CCTV camera in China, Moscow or London are just hoaxes. Looks like, the video editing was created as part of a prank back in 2012.

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.
