Robert Leland Knight is station’s most active ghost. He was electrocuted in 1940 at age 28 when he stepped in a puddle into which a downed power line had fallen. The ghost has been known to play pranks. One story involves a witness who was tiling a station wall when he said out loud, “Robert, tell me if you like what I’m doing.” After a loud noise in the next room, the witness went to investigate, and when he came back, almost all the tile work he had done was off the wall and neatly stacked on the floor.
