Stereo recording of three linked diesel locomotives idling in the train yard. Captured at an angle to the lead engine, with the others muffled by work sheds. Recorded with a Zoom H1, mastered in Sound Forge 5. EQ'ed to reduce low-end rumble and edited for easy looping.

    I agree. Trains of all kinds are amazing machines and make incredible sounds. Steam trains in particular. Unfortunately the rail system here in Canada is a shadow of its former glory, and I can't see steam-powered locomotives making a comeback unless they're forced back on the rails by a major energy crisis.

    Steam powered trains are so cool. It would not cost a great deal for the coal, until states and countries decided to put those engines into use again. For commerce and transportation.Then the cost of the coal would be like anything else, like petroleum.
    The burgeoning public would increase use of resources.
