Raw audio of standing in the connector chute between the first and second carriages of a South West Trai-... *ahem*... "South Western Railyway" English train. The squeaking is the result of the main connector between the two carriages sliding around with the suspension (as each carriage lightly bounces around when travelling). The train was travelling very fast between Guildford and Farncombe stations, at a speed of perhaps 60-70MPH. The recorder was held in the center of the chute pointing downward. The train horn can be heard.

If any of these sounds have been of help, and you are feeling charitable, please do consider donating to Freesound to help keep the site running (a link is also on the home page). Any donations are greatly appreciated! And for more awesome sounds, do please check out my sound libraries.

Please comment on where you intend to use the sound, and feel free to post a link to the work where you used it if you want (I enjoy watching/listening to anything you create!)

You don't have to worry about crediting this sound if you are using it for non-commercial projects unless you want to (e.g. educational or non-profit activities), but if you use the sound for a commercial project you must credit the sound. If you would prefer to not have to give attribution for commercial projects, then take a look at the attribution-free license.

An example of how you might credit is by putting this in the description/credits:
"Train, Travelling Between Carriages, A.wav" by InspectorJ (www.jshaw.co.uk) of Freesound.org

The sound was recorded using a "H1 Zoom recorder" on 28th September 2017.

Note: Audio quality is always better when downloaded.
