Chattanooga Choo Choo Chimera

The Chattannooga Choo Choo Holiday Inn celebrates that city's flirtations with trains by offering special accommodations aboard authentic Victorian railcars. John West and his wife stayed in these special accommodations in August 2004, only to find they weren't alone. In John West's words:

"Our evening there began with a TV which seemed to have a mind of its own. We had instances where channels would be changing without any input from ourselves. We also had items moved from locations where they had been placed to be discovered in other locations. The wife sensed the presence of a being passing behind her back."

John took the above photo outside their room around 11:00pm. It's a great example of ectoplasmic mist. He says he sees the shape of someone crawling although I see an elongated face on the right too.

Thanks to these former Ghost Hunters of Asheville guests for sharing this remarkable image.

Hi Deb! I just left a comment, but not sure if it went through, as it returned to this same page. I ran across this page when researching for the book I am coauthoring for History Press on Haunted Chattanooga. Nice to have a face to put with the name and voice. : )

One of the ghosts of the Choo Choo is a former porter who has been reported to move things, so that would be entirely consistent with your encounter.

Next time you're in town, look me up!
