Audiences are set for a terrifying Halloween railway ride
A TERRIFYING train journey is the setting for a scary Halloween production.
The first performance of Quarantine will take place tonight (Wednesday) and the audience - the passengers on the train - are in for the ride, and possibly the fright, of their life.
Disease has broken out, and infected zombies roam Ruislip Woods. Murray Bolter, a volunteer on the Ruislip Lido railway, will be driving the train through the middle of them.
There is a different thriller production each year and Murray, from Ruislip, said it is always a sell-out. "People really like it, being on the train, and I suppose people like being scared out of their wits.
"Actually one year I was walking along the platform at the beginning of one show and I turned around and a lady was stood behind me, so I said: 'Hello' - and she just screamed.
"I definitely think a person's sense of fear is heightened being on the train.
"It feels more real because you are in it."
Mr Boulter has organised this year's chiller with the actors of Argosy Players, who have teamed up with Ruislip Lido Railway, whose track runs through the woods at the lido, off Reservoir Road.
Quarantine runs until Saturday, November 3. Tickets via www.argosyplayers.org.uk/tickets.htm
