This guy Jamie Pfeifer came all the way from St Louis Missouri to ride the once a week “Ghost Train” as he is a “Railroad” fan . He is also a superb Stock Car Driver and has represented the USA in the Stock Car World Championship at Belle Vue Stadium Manchester & Coventry Stadium Warwickshire in the 70’s and 80’s. If you check out YouTube “Jamie Pfeifer crash Coventry” you will see him in a spectacular crash last year in the “Heritage Class ” Stock Cars, as Jamie has now retired from serious racing, although you would not think so from this video ! !

He took the opportunity of coming down to the Station Platform with Cllr Tom Grundy and technical expert Noel Henry to present Dot and Kim with their certificates.
