From "The Official Fairhaven Guide", 2008-2009 Edition:

The Haunted Basement

As long as 22 years ago, there were written active reports of spirits making their presence known in the basement of the Nelson Block at 11th & Harris Avenue. When The Digs Inn & Tap Room opened in Autumn of 1986, many people noticed a ghost of a woman who always appeared around 3 or 4 AM outside the restroom doors in the foyer. ... Fairhaven Gazette

Fairhaven's Ghost Train

Each year on the night of December 21st, the mournful whistle of a doomed southbound freight train howls through Fairhaven. The ghost train barrels through the district for its annual plunge in the Skagit River, just as it did when the bridge collapsed in 1892. ... from a 1905 scrapbook and Penny Tillson, Fairhaven Gazette
Who owns the land? Only the land knows. We mortals are passersby, and our lives are but a brief moment in the great span of time and space. We are born, we live out our lives, and most of us do the best we can with it, but the wind is forever, and the rivers flow forever to the sea, and all the seasons of the weathers will come and go after we are gone. But the Earth endures, the Earth is eternal" - Earl Hamner

Yup, it's now a community, and a very nice one. It was a thriving community back in the days of the gold and fish rushes. Now, the Alaskan ferry docks there. There is a gorgeous view of Bellingham Bay.

Are there any recent accounts of the ghost train in this area?
