    Very nice recording! I used it with a film that takes place in Cornwall, England, but most people cannot tell the difference...

    Very very interesting soundscape. We thank you sincerely Felix Blume of this sound. We just released a song where we used this recording in the very end (The Available: Careful - Cinema House Remix, after 4:50) https://open.spotify.com/track/7cG6r3sgpieaKBvooBxjXs?si=URsgQQ5iSe6xGf0sKsdePQ
    When scanning through the usable train sounds, your recording stood out in its originality.
