The Music in a Train

Grab a rock, have a seat, and talk about the real world of trains.

You can hear that they are a British band. I especially like the Challenger picure at 2:00.

Udo Lindenberg - Sonderzug nach Pankow !**duh*!!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rfNBMoFhtg

Video of a steam museum railway running on tram tracks through a city in central Germany. I found the video much more impressive than the song, but it fits best into this thread *!lol!*

That's a cute little train. Where is it exactly, never heard of it?
It's driving pretty fast for a train running through a town. But a train has no license plate so..... *!!wink!!* !*roll-laugh*!
Anyway I don't really like Udo Lindenberg.

R.E.M "Driver 8": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_co-yU-sZc
Such a great song. !!*ok*!!

Also consider this music too!
"PRR K4s #3882 leaving Beverly, NJ (1952)": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5MtamH9ju8&hd=1
"PRR I1sa on Elmira Branch (1955)": (PRR Banshee Freight whistle is just great) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IlikiNSu9k&hd=1

I'll add one more: "PRR T1 Duplex #5505 at Horseshoe Curve (1949)": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6HTHcouKu4

As of note a T1 was supposedly clocked doing at least 140mph while slowing down for a station stop...
