Vehicles: Freight Train Sound Effects 1

Freight Trains 1 Sound Effects

The Freight Trains 1 sound effects collection gathers the heavy, grumbling sound of diesel locomotives and clatter of freight rail cars. Also included are ambient recordings of train yards with multiple freight trains.

The recordings feature muscular horsepower from engines such as the GE AC4400CW, EMD SD40-2, GE ES44AC, GE EMD SD90 43MAC, MLW RS-10 diesel-electric power plants. These and other general locomotives approach, idle while huffing and glugging, groan by, and depart. Freight cars highlight autoracks and tankers that squeal, grind, and wheeze while scraping the rails.
