I have always been fascinated by the sounds of train stations and airports and that is one of the reason why you’re able to find many transportation sound libraries on our website.
There is something so captivating about observing the bustling activities and taking in the various sounds that make up this unique environment. On a recent trip to Chiang Mai, I decided to take advantage of my time at the train station to record some of these sounds.
As I waited for trains to arrive and depart, I recorded the engine sounds, which were different from anything I had heard before. The hydraulic pops and unique engine noises are perfect for sound design and experimental music creation. I also captured other sounds such as announcements in Thai, English, and Chinese, train horns, accelerations, and the voices of people communicating via walkie-talkies.
Before leaving the train station, I made sure to record the sound of the locomotive engine, which was especially interesting because most of the trains in use still date back to the 80s and are still functioning perfectly!
Whether you’re a sound designer, experimental musician, or just a lover of interesting sounds, these recordings from the Chiang Mai Train Station are sure to be a valuable addition to your library.
