Steam Train in the Bois de Boulogne Revisited

by soundlandscapes

In May this year, I put a post on to this blog with the sound of the little steam train in the Bois de Boulogne which runs from the Jardin d’Acclimatation to Porte Dauphine and is a regular summer attraction.

I live close to the Bois de Boulogne so a couple of weeks ago I went back to take some photographs of the train.

To record the train I stood in the trees close to the narrow gauge railway line that it runs on.

The train came, passed me and went on its way to Porte Dauphine and then back to the Jardin d’Acclimatation.

This is the sound I recorded – a sound very familiar to all those who visit the Bois de Boulogne.

This is a binaural recording so to get the best effect it’s best to listen through headphones.
