|Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance, but I wonder how many have been on a train and listened to the sounds from inside. |
How many have experienced the rhythmic vibration that imbeds itself deep in your brain; the side-to-side kachunking jostle; the click, click, clicking of the rails; the bumping up and down in your seat; and the whoosh – silence, whoosh - silence as the train passes stationary objects. The experience reminds me of that school sing-along song, “The Wheels on a Bus”.
I love train sounds. It makes me feel like I’m really going somewhere -- that it requires work to get from point A to point B. None of the quiet hum of an air-conditioned car or drone of a plane for me. I like the rattle and clacking of a train.
