Really great stuff - you can hear the drivers a-rollin' and the hiss of steam - or the digin' of the navvies shovels on this one.

Thanks

Does Kempion Iron Horse track really end that abruptly? The only thing I have for comparison is a 30 year old tape I made from a radio show in England where they faded this tack out early. Boy does this site have old gems for me, thanks!
