On my way to work I got stopped at a railroad crossing. This is the recording I took of the train going by. It is quite intense. If you listen to the whole thing you will hear a lot of metal scraping and screeching sounds. I thought the train was going to derail. Recorded in Rockford, Illinois with an H2 Zoom.

    That screeching sound is called guaging, you mostly hear it a lot on curves or in places where the track is uneven; it happens as the wheels search for the rails and the flanges rub against the inside edges.
