  • "Ladies and gentlemen, please take your seats. The train leaves in a few minutes. All the
  • seers-off, please exit the car. You may wave to your loved ones from the platform.
  • We hope you’ll enjoy your trip. Drinks and snacks will be served soon. Get ready to travel
  • through time; our next stop is a medieval monastery in Modena!"
  • Imagine traveling on a train that is actually a time machine that would never bring you
  • back. The 106 passengers and crew of the Zanetti train probably would’ve thought twice before
  • they embarked on their adventure, had they known that. Just like the passengers of the
  • “Titanic,” which set off for its first and last cruise almost a year later, they
  • never reached their destination. The difference, though, is that no one knows what happened
  • to the train…
  • On July 14, 1911 the rail company “Zanetti” offered well-off Italians a free trial ride
  • on their new train. The passengers were enjoying their ride watching scenic views along the
  • way, making small talk, and enjoying their refreshments. One of the sites they were looking
  • forward to was a new tunnel that went through a mountain. It was one of the longest ever
  • built at the time.
  • And that’s where the mystery begins. The train entered the half mile-long (1 km) tunnel
  • in Lombardy Mountain and never came out! Just, disappeared! After the incident, the railway
  • workers and police searched every square foot of it, but found no trace of the train. The
  • tunnel itself was just a long tube. There was nowhere to go but to the other side, yet
  • there was neither a train nor any signs of a crash there.
  • However, there were two passengers found who’d jumped off the train just before it vanished
  • into the tunnel. Later, when they came to, they were able to tell the story of their
  • eerie trip.
  • As the train approached the tunnel, black smoke came out of nowhere as well as a dense
  • white fog. The train slowed down as it was nearing the entrance, and the fog began to
  • envelop it. The men panicked and jumped to the ground before the train was gone.
  • One of the survivors told an Italian newspaper about the incident: “I heard an unclear
  • humming sound. Beyond the black smoke, I could see a milky-white fog creeping from the tunnel
  • – it literally swallowed the train like a wave. And with it the first car of our ill-fated
  • train split open. It became so horrifying. The train was barely moving so I jumped from
  • the car and my eyes caught another passenger who jumped at the same time. We both hit the
  • ground hard, and that is the last thing I remember.”
  • The injured men suffered from sleeping troubles and other stress disorders for a while. As
  • for the train, it was never seen again. Word spread about the tunnel, and officials thought
  • it best to close it. Then, the notorious tunnel happened to get bombed during World War II,
  • closing it off forever…
  • No one could come up with a sound explanation for this strange disappearance: dozens had
  • witnessed the train leaving the station in Rome and entering the tunnel, but nobody saw
  • it come out.
  • But that’s not the last time we’d hear about the mysterious train. There are records
  • of medieval monks from Modena who saw a three-car train with people in it. How could they conceive
  • a huge iron machine puffing clouds of black smoke? A horse was the fastest means of transport
  • at the time. Railroads hadn’t been invented yet. Well, they thought it, along with the
  • passengers who they described were clean-shaven and dressed in black, all must be the work
  • of some evil forces…
  • You can say that medieval monks made it up, but here’s the thing: their report was kept
  • in the records of Casta Solea, stored by the Sadjino family. And one of the survivors of
  • the train had the name Sadjino.
  • Then, in the 1840s, there's a report that the Zanetti passengers were seen in Mexico.
  • A psychiatrist in a local hospital left notes saying that a group of 104 Italians were admitted
  • all in a hysterical state. They were all dressed in strange clothes obviously from a different
  • place, and claimed they were travelling from Rome by a Zanetti train. One of the passengers
  • actually had a cigarette box with a future date “1907”on it. They say it is still
  • kept in a Mexican museum.
  • The psychiatrist concluded that it was a case of mass insanity, but he failed to come up
  • with any explanation for it. There are no records left of the patients after that.
  • Many years later, the train appeared again in Europe. On October 29, 1955 a three-car
  • old-fashioned train appeared not far from Zavalichi, a small village in Ukraine. The
  • signalman, Pyotr Ustimenko, saw it moving soundlessly.
  • He reported that he’d been on duty that night and suddenly saw a train that wasn’t
  • on the schedule. The train was heading without tracks to Gasfort Mountain. He thought he
  • was seeing things and rubbed his eyes, but there it was – with shut curtains, open
  • doors, and an empty driver’s cabin. Ustimenko had never seen a train like that before, but
  • he knew it was old, definitely a pre-war model. The description he gave was the same as that
  • of the Zanetti. It’s unlikely a signalman from a remote town in the USSR would know
  • anything about an Italian train lost at the beginning of the 20th century.
  • Another interesting note about this sighting is that at the end of the 19th century, there
  • was an Italian cemetery built on Gasfort Mountain near Sevastopol. About 2,000 Italian soldiers
  • who died during the Crimean War were buried there. Later, a railroad from Balaklava was
  • constructed over the former cemetery, but then was destroyed after the revolution of
  • 1917 because it was no longer used. Was the ghost train riding on ghost tracks to meet
  • its Italian brethren? I guess we’ll never know…
  • And, again, this wasn’t the last account of the train appearing.
  • As crazy as all this sounds, could there be a scientific explanation of the ghost train
  • adventures?
  • Some believe all the railroads in the world form a sort of connected web that has its
  • own magnetic field. The trains serve as electric conductors between the earth’s natural magnetic
  • field and the artificial one. The conflict between the two forces creates fractures in
  • time with endless holes. This explanation is based on Einstein’s theory of relativity
  • and Minkowski’s definition of distance.
  • These fractures are called “chronal holes.” Sometime before the Zanetti train left the
  • station, there had been an earthquake where the tracks were. It’s believed the crust
  • fracture, which appeared under Lombardy Mountain, created a time anomaly at the entrance to
  • the tunnel. The train became the link necessary to dig through time and space, and it fell
  • from its time vector where it belonged and could move to other times. So, in layman’s
  • terms, it was traveling through time!
  • In case you’re already getting goosebumps and swearing off trains forever, rest assured
  • that this isn’t something you have to worry about happening to you because it’s just
  • an urban legend. It got so popular that some paranormal enthusiasts devoted years to finding
  • proof of the Zanetti train’s existence. As time went on, more names and details were
  • added to the legend. However, if you try to look-up the rail company Zanetti, Casta Solea,
  • the Sadjino family, or a signalman named Pyotr Ustimenko, you’ll only find links to different
  • versions of this legend.
  • Ghosts and trains make for great stories, but there has yet to be any evidence of a
  • ghost train ever existing. But I don’t think that’ll stop people from looking for them
  • or telling more stories about them! If you have the time, you can find dozens
  • of stories about ghost trains to keep you entertained. One of the most popular stories
  • is a play written by Arnold Ridley in 1923, “The Ghost Train,” that was inspired by
  • a creepy night he spent at a remote railway station. Hmm, sounds like a pretty good read!
  • Do you know any other urban legends? Let me know down in the comments! If you learned
  • something new today, then give this video a like and share it with a friend.
