Stereo recording of a train arriving and departing at Aldgate East tube station, and another train departing on the other track. London Underground trains have rubber wheels and a characteristic kind of rumble. The doors open and close automatically. Faint tannoy announcement in the background, and a couple of electronic warning tones when the doors open and close. Aldgate East station is huge but has a surprisingly 'dry' and 'dead' acoustic so that it is very quiet when the trains have gone.
Recorded on a Zoom H2 recorder, front microphones, 90 degree separation. No amplification or equilisation on this sample.
