Of all Peter Handford's LPs of steam engines, none was better than Trains in the Night. The K3 with church bells in the background where you could feel the frost through your speakers (even in vinyl days!). That amazing recording of a Castle and so many others. This is not that album. It has some of the tracks but in my view all the best are missing - and we certainly don't need a track of foreign engines.I am sure this is great if you don't have the original. But actually it's a million miles from Handford's originally conceived "Trains in the Night." This one has run out of steam.

This is a brilliant cd which captures the sounds of a long gone era. Peter deserves our thanks for bring back wonderful sounds of a bygone era. You can smell the smoke and steam! More please and what about Ireland?

HASH(0x9aaf9ea0) out of 5 stars Peter Handford at his best 24 Dec. 2008
By Mr. John Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Peter Handford was a genius in a music studio. Happily he spent his spare time by the lineside in the 1950s and 1960s with what was then very sophisticated portable equipment. His mission? To record the sounds of the end of steam traction on Great Britain's railways.

Of all Handford's vinyl albums, Trains in the Night was probably the best. The opening recording of a 'Castle' class is amazing - you can almost see the engine as it heads away to London. But the piece de resistance is the closing track of a K3 on a freezing, snowy night. Every time I play it I actually feel cold (even in California!). The way the tracks were sequenced and the quality of the recording made Trains in the Night something very special.

So what of this CD? Well, it simply won't do. ASV have ruined a fine work by omitting some of the best items and throwing in a completely unnecessary overseas recording. This really jars - a bit like buying a Beach Boys album and having Meatloaf doing a song in the middle. So you are basically getting just some of the original, but you'd be better to pick up a used vinyl copy in the UK and have it transferred to DVD. Five stars for the original album, but two for this weak remake.
