The sounds former London Midland Scottish locomotives at work on the Great Central Railway.

L.M.S Stanier 8F Class 2-8-0 No.48624 clears the single line section at Rothley and accelerates away under the road bridge towards Quorn and Woodhouse. L.M.S Class 2 2-6-0 No.46521 has been waiting patiently for the road and once given the right away gets smartly away towards Leicester North.

Rain is dripping from the trees after a brief shower and has eased off to a fine drizzle. An approaching train is heard heading from Quorn and Woodhouse. L.M.S Ivatt Class 4 2-6-0 No.43106 passes heading towards Rothley.

L.M.S 0-6-0T Class 3F 'Jinty' No.47406 (disguised as No.47203) gives a long whistle and races past under Kinchley Lane over bridge towards Rothley as the rain spatters down once more.

At Quorn and Woodhouse we hear L.M.S Class 2 2-6-0 No.46521 arriving with a train for Leicester North and L.M.S Stanier 8F Class 2-8-0 No.48624 with a train for Loughborough Central. A vintage car passes by on it's way out of the Car Park as a motorbike passes noisily over the road bridge. No.48624 gets the right away first and blasts powerfully away under the bridge drowning out the departure of No.46521.

L.M.S Class 2 2-6-0 No 46521 races through Quorn Station with the Travelling Post Office coaches. Dropping and picking up two mailbags by the signalbox.

    I will use a segment of this track as a background sound effect for a community Theater production of a play

    Great recording. I'd like to use it in an Am Dram production for the Maritime Players in Appledore, North Devon.

    Would this ok. I will use it to build an ambient soundscape for WW2 station.

    thanks Phillip
