It was a period piece (although probably contemporary when written). Most likely 19th Century or very early 20th.
I think that the first time the diarist hears the noise, he thinks it's a tree scratching against the window.
Also, at one point he spends some time in the countryside to recuperate from what he believes at this point to be an illness. Standing in the middle of nowhere, he hears the noise again.

Good luck finding it, although I don't think I necessarily know this one.

I've been trying for years to track down an anthology of railway ghost stories I used to get out of the library on Chivers Audio book as a kid. I tried emailing Chivers once but they didn't have any record of it.

TheoGB,
You might want to ask on this board about the railway ghost stories... http://vaultofevil.proboards.com/index.cgi
They haven't come up with an answer to my query yet but they know their stuff and might be able to help you.
