A slow train headed out of Portland, Oregon passes around a curve. I was pretty close to the tracks so the driver gives a couple blows on his horn, just in case I failed to see the gigantic train coming. Lots of scrapes and metallic sounds. There is a huge dynamic range and this recording is best if you download it and listen loudly, but be nice to your ears.
Recorded with a stereo pair of Sennheiser MKH 8020 mics into a modified Marantz PMD661.
