These recordings are very rich and noisy. You can hear the traffic on the bridge above and the reverberation and resonance of the bridge, the trains shunt in the yard below, and there are seagulls and ducks in the water.

I look forward to recording more at this location, exploring different placements to highlight different aspects, and capturing some more of the train sounds, which are relatively dramatic.
