  • CD-First & Second Generation Diesels Vol 3 (7-6056)

    Original price was: $14.99.Current price is: $9.99.

    When the diesel entered the scene in the late 1940’s, they incorporated the advantages that made them an obvious choice to replace steam with the exception of their horns. While steam engine whistles ranged from beautiful and melodious to haunting, the single note warning devices delivered with early diesels was just plain noise.

    In the effort to make the new “growlers” as they were called, more lovable, air horn makers Nathan and Leslie made a variety of air chimes in an effort to duplicate that long lonesome whistle of the steam era. At the same time, Swanson of Canada developed the K series of horns in conjunction with Nathan. It is this K Style of horn that modern diesels are using almost universally.

    This compilation of trains in action concentrates on the tunable Nathan M-5 on both SP and WP, Leslies S-4’s, Nathan P-3’s, P-5’s on a Variety of Power from F units  ti SDP-40F’s. Previously Released as Air Horn Symphony Volume 2, the title change gives the correct name to what we’ve recorded… Trains in action

    Enjoy the chant of the 567 diesel, the burble of a U25B or turbo charged 2nd generation power sporting and old horn on a new paint Job.

    With progress comes change and everything on this recording is now gone or a museum piece. If you want to hear what the early diesels sounded like, this is a great walk down memory lane!

  • CD-Greatest Hits Of The Daylight Volume 2 In The Cab (7-6098)

    Original price was: $14.99.Current price is: $9.99.

    The Cab of a Steam Locomotive is a places of incredible heat, noise and vibrations the can jar body parts from their normal locations. At the same time, The ab of a steam locomotive is a place of wonder and awe as ma and machine work together to make the most wonderful signs and sounds imaginable. Have you ever wondered who those lucky people were that you waved at as the Daylight passed you by?  We categorize them into three groups: Those who have business in the cab such as running the locomotive or a railroad official familiar with the territory; those who have done something very special or know somebody of importance; and the rest of the world who would give their eye teeth for a cab ride in the Daylight. Those who have attained the inner sanctum of cab ridership will remember forever the thrill of the event, the way time flew by and then, it was over all too soon. This recording is for anyone who ever wanted to be in the cab as well as those who were and would like a souvenir. We searched the world over for the finest recordings ever made from the cab of the Daylight and are pleased to release some of the works of the late Brad Miller of Mobile Fidelity Recordings. Brad Masterfully used the best equipment available to deliver pure sounds. when the equipment wasn’t good enough, Brad invented his own Colossus mikes that could bring true sounds to us without distortion from wind or noise. Brad’s widow was gracious enough to allow us to keep his work alive for all to enjoy.

  • CD-High Country Steam (7-7058)

    Original price was: $14.99.Current price is: $9.99.

    Originally released by ARKAY Enterprises, you can now enjoy the sounds of narrow gauge K series locomotives hard at work on the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad. The Denver & Rio Grande Western Narrow gauge railroad in the Rocky Mountain high county is as much a symbol of the old west as anything else put there by man. Built in the 1880’s to haul silver and gold out of the area around Silverton, CO., portions of the line lasted in common carrier freight service until the 1960’s, with all trains powered by steam. Fortunately, two sections have been saved for future generations to enjoy. We concentrate on the spectacular segment between Chama, NM. and Antonito, CO., which operates now as the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic RR. The Line Twists and climbs from an altitude of 7860 feet at Chama to 10,000 feet at Cumbres Pass  in just 14 miles! Grades of 4% are common. High Country Steam captures the sounds of this exciting stretch of railroad, combining sequences from common carrier operation in the 1960’s with scenes from the Great Freight 79 Special and operation of rotary plow OM. Our CD opens with a spectacular sequence that our recording engineers call “Thunder on Cumbres” , as 2-8-2 484 attacks Cumbres Pass in the middle of a thunder storm. We will then take you through sequences depicting a climb over Cumbres, spanning 13 years of operation. We hope you enjoy!
