Driver's View Train Rides

Here are some samples of beautiful train trips, shot from the driver's cab. The sounds of the traction motors and clicking of the wheels on the tracks create an absorbing experiene. You may finds yourself leaning forward as the train comes to a stop.

Sit down without interruptions and allow youself to be drawn into the scene.

Turn the volume up to simulate the volume in the cab, meaning fairly loud. Use earphones to block out other sounds.
