"Different trains, different tunnels" - Part 1

"End of the line". For decades "The Northlander" has snaked 700 kilometers from Toronto to Cochrane, through farmland and the hard rock of the Canadian shield - a train with a long and proud history. Last year the Ontario government cancelled it. Some people on its last run were travelling on routine business, others to savour a sad moment and to remember. "Noises off". What is it about train sounds that stimulate our imagination and our memories? We asked people to put on headphones, listen to the sounds of trains and talk.
