Steam engine number 3205 at South Devon Railway (UK) starting out from Buckfastleigh station en route to Totnes, hauling passenger coaches.
The whistle blows, steam hisses, then the engine starts, and the coaches pass.
As the engine picks up speed you get the "I-think-I-can" sound together with the clackety clack of wheels on old style tracks.

Recorded with Zoom H1.

    Thank you. One of those sounds that should be simple to find and record but isn't. Going into a long poem called "Life and Death and Everything in Between"

    Many thanks! It's going into an historical documentary about a 1930's train station, now retired!
