Just under 5 minutes of raw ambience taken at London Waterloo Train Station. You can hear various people walking past, a few statements from the transit announcements.

    I'm thinking about using a part of this sound on one of my band songs as a background noise on the instrumental section.
    I'm gonna give you credit everytime I can write description/credits.

    Will this be fine?

    Thanks. I'm planting this sound file under my model of Leicester Central station. With only 6 platforms, maybe not as busy as Waterloo, but very convincing ambience.
