Stereo recording of a steam train leaving Moor Street station in Birmingham in the direction of Snow Hill station, going into a short tunnel as soon as the engine leaves the platform. 4-6-0 Hall class locomotive pulling a train of vintage carriages. Steam hiss, guard's whistle clearing the driver to leave the platform, coal being shovelled into furnace, piston starts to move, speeds up, train whistle (brief), sound of the steam locomotive fades and carriage bogey noise.
Recorded on a Zoom H2 with built in microphones, in 'mid' sensitivity level, hand held.
