** {{UsefulNotes/Berlin}} is this [[TropeCodifier trope's codifier]], if not even TropeNamer. Berlin gave birth to the word ''Geisterbahnhof'' after all, meaning "ghost station" or "haunted station". When the BerlinWall was erected, the GDR closed East Berlin subway stations at lines running from the West through the East back into West (modern-day U6, U8 and the North-South S-Bahn) and secured them with all handy technological and of course personell measures (read: armed guards) to combat any remote possibility for republic flight. When a subway train from the West slowed down at said stations, passengers could pick up the silhouettes of the armed guards in these darkened closed station, looking like ghost, hence the name. Of course, all said stations were renovated and reopened after HoleInFlag made their raison d'être obsolete.
