About the Steam Train Collection

This is the first time this steam train is available as a collection, or as we call them on Airborne Sound, a “Jet Pack.”

This collection is a great way to download all the steam train sound effects for a low price: just $23 for 39 sound clips.

Download is instant and secure.

You’ll only find them on Airborne Sound. These sound fx are exclusive. We’ve not published them elsewhere on the Web. They’re only available on

Why This Collection Is Special

We’re quite proud of these sound effects. Why?

Well, our sound librarians have put a lot of work into mastering, tweaking, polishing and curating these sounds.

Also, the collection includes unique recording perspectives. There are multiple ride and onboard sound effects. The ride perspective has the microphone inside the train, traveling along with it. The onboard perspective has the microphone mounted to the outside of the train.

To our knowledge there are no existing recordings of steam trains with this perspective available for purchase.

The collection also includes loopable tracks. These shorter segments can be repeated end to end endlessly to create seamless, long tracks. This is perfect for filling long movie scenes or for use in video games.

There are also various recordings of steam bursts, blasts and steam whistles.

The Royal Hudson steam trains were built by Montréal Locomotive Works, and owned by the Canadian Pacific Railway.

They were given the “Royal” name when they transported King George VI in 1939.
