Steam Engine Sounds

Back in the mid 1960's when the book "Steel Rails to the Sunrise" by Ron Ziel and George Foster was published, the buyer could also get, for an additional $1.00, a record with sounds of LIRR Steam Engines that had been recorded when they were still in service. Thanks to Big John, for lending me the record so I could record it for this website. Click on these thumbnails to see the front cover, back cover and the record, respectively. the back cover gives more information.
