HO Scale Ghost Train

Here's a terrific item for sale on eBay from seller erniepz (

  1. Love it! And one of my favorite Halloween sound effects - that is the same from those sonic controlled ghosts that started popping up in the early 90s I think?

    I don't think I've come across those sonic controlled ghosts - please tell me more!
