On a scale of 87 to 3, with 87 representing absolute metaphysical certitude of ruling harder than any record you’ve heard in the last week…………..this one is a 113.
That it needs to be loud is a given.
I’m not a train nut by any stretch, I just like the weight to the sound these assemblages carry.
Feeling and hearing are key to experiencing a moving train. Come by the shop and you might get lucky enough to hear when a train is passing and the engineer hits the horn.
