No one ever talks about the locomotive hearse the Scrooge sees going up the steps before him!

Also I think there might be a typo:

"...in a lowering pile of building up a yard.."

(I'm guessing "building" should be plural.)

I like the way he writes about Scrooge searching the room. It gives that feeling of anxiety, when you think someone could be in the house.
