I recently picked up a casette tape on ebay with electric engine sounds on trains between NH and NY. I havent received the tape yet so I cant comment on how good it is. I have also added Jays email address so that anyone might contact him to see if he has any more for sale. I am not associated with him in any way regarding selling these tapes.
I have also pasted below the tape description that was on ebay.
You are bidding on a one hour audio cassette tape. (2-30minute sides) taken in real time during the 15 year period from 1950 to about 1965 by an ex New Haven Railroad engineer. He taped as a hobby and captured this rare sound on various types of equipment available nearly 50 years ago. He had the most success with a magnetic wire recorder which was bulky and hard to manage, and resulted in a lot of extraneous noises. He was a frequent buyer of our tapes and approached us to help him edit and clean up his original while putting them on cassettes so he could listen to them in his car. We were able to edit and clean up much of the tape recordings and the result was that we were given the rights to add these selections to our catalog of rare railroad sounds. This particular tape NEW HAVEN ELECTRIC POWER is the 46th in our series of audio tapes featuring a specific railroad, and the 5th devoted exclusively to the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad. Unlike the first tapes ,New Haven Diesels part 1 , New Haven Diesels part 2, New Haven Diesels part 3 (Cedar Hill) and New Haven diesels part 4, the locations used for this tape are basically in and around the New Haven, CT. station, along the Shoreline and in the cabs of locomotives.. Side 1 (master# 340) Starts out with a cab ride in a GE EP4, the streamlined 4-6-0 x 0-6-4 double cab electric as she pulls the Clocker from New Haven towards New York City. Next we are at the New Haven station where we catch an arriving passenger train with another EP4 in the lead. Then an EP3 (unstreamlined box cab version of the EP4) arrives with a passenger train. Then another EP3 leaves New Haven station with a passenger train. Still in the station we hear an EP4 as it leaves., and another EP4 as it moves around getting in place for the next assignment. Next we have a very rare sound clip taken in late 1960. On the same clip we hear a soon to be retired EP3 as it arrives with a passenger train on one side of a platform and a brand new FL9 as it leaves with a train from the other side of the same platform. Then the EP3 backs down towards serving area. This is one of those blinks in time when the last of one breed briefly passes the new kid in town. The FL9s started arriving in late 1960 and the EP3s were scrapped from about 1955 with the last one in early 1961, making this a rare chance encounter. Next an EP4 leaves with a passenger train. Then an EP5 jet arrives with a passenger train from NYC. Then in quick succession and EP4 leaves with a passenger train as does our old EP3 with another passenger local. Then an EP4 arrives with a PT. The last sound clip on this side is a cab ride in a Jet EP5. This was one of the first in cab tapes our friend took and while the original was noisy with a lot of in cab chatter, when cleaned and edited it is a very exceptional record of the sounds of a jet at the point of a fast passenger train. Side 2 (master#341) continues our coverage of the New Haven Electric power starting with another cab ride (after all our friend was a New Haven engineer) this time in an EP4 out of New Haven on an eastbound crack passenger train. This is a great cab ride sound, with little chatter and good clear engine sounds. It is truly good stuff. Then its along the shoreline to catch runbys first there are 3 different runbys with EP5 s, then a runby with a pair of EF4s (E33s to the non New Haven fan) on a short freight with a slow order. Then its back to New Haven where we catch an EP4 with a local as it leaves, and then outside of town we catch another pair of EF4s as the start a long freight eastbound. Next is the last cab ride.. this time on of the EP5 Jets . This is a great clip with amazing acceleration with a large main line passenger train.. this too is memorable and rare sound. The last 4 clips are EP5s.. First leaving the New Haven station, followed by two high speed runbys and the last clip on this tape is of a passenger train leaving New Haven station with a battered old EP5.
