Locals and railway workers say they lived in fear of a female phantom who frequented Begunkodor 260km (161 miles) from the state capital, Calcutta.
In 1967, a railway worker is said to have died days after he saw a "woman ghost" draped in a white sari.
Officials say the story was made up to avoid postings at the remote station.
They argue that it was primarily railway employees who expressed fears about the "woman ghost" at Begunkodor.
