This weekend, the Subway is getting into the Halloween spirit by giving you some ghoulishly good giveaways. If you are travelling through Buchanan Street, Hillhead or Partick station between 2pm and 6pm on Friday 31 October, you can get your hands on sweets and cupcakes from our spooky team.

You might also notice that our stations have got into the Halloween spirit and had a ghostly makeover– see if you can spot our scary decorations and listen out for the Subway’s haunting sounds but make sure you don’t get our fun activities mixed up with our real Subway ghosts!

  • The Beautiful Lady Ghost of Hillhead, clad in a 1930s evening gown, can be spotted strolling up and down the platform singing. She is said to have an air of happiness and frivolity, making her one of the Subway’s friendliest ghosts!
  • Despite coming from a wealthy family, popular local eccentric Robert Cobble fell into poverty and tragically lost his sight in a vicious attack in the early 1900s. Robert met an untimely end, dying from the cold near West Street station and there have been sightings of the ‘blue, blind beggar’ huddled outside the entrance …
  • The Cat Ghost of St Enoch comes out to play between the hours of midnight and 3am. The frightful feline, who has only ever been witnessed by engineers working late at night, is said to have a playful nature and scampers up and down the platform before disappearing into thin air!

If you follow us on Twitter @GlasgowSubway you can also get in on the Halloween action by entering our pumpkin carving and fancy dress competitions. Tweet us pictures of your creations and costumes – with the best pumpkin and outfit winning £30 of vouchers.

Have a happy Halloween – mmmmmwwwwahahahahahaha
