50% of the TRAINS SFX library were recorded with a double M/S surround microphone setup. The surround version of our TRAINS library gives you all the sounds from the stereo version plus additional 33GB surround sounds to design great surround train ambiences with ease. To see which sounds come in 5.0 surround, please take a look at the data sheet
All sounds are delivered in high quality with 96kHz / 24-bit. The files come in unencoded double M/S and encoded 5.0 surround. Due to the huge file size, the surround collection is not available for download. It ships on a 64GB USB 3.0 flash drive (+50,00€).
What we recorded
It took us some time to find that perfect recording spot: we rented an old train track in the eastern part of Germany to fully wire the trains and record all possible sounds. Apart from that we recorded trains in South Africa and the UK to further increase your sound design possibilities. The result is this gigantic TRAINS sound effects library that will surely help you for a long long time.
What's so special about this library?
The initial request to record the TRAINS sounds came from the crew of SNOWPIERCER, a fantastic Korean-US production featuring Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Ed Harris. The movie completely plays in a train that runs through a post-apocalyptic world. BOOM Library was asked to deliver top-notch train recordings to create a convincing and realistic atmosphere throughout the whole movie. With this TRAINS SFX library, you have access to exactly the same recordings.

We’d like to share this with you.
Ripper Street, Line of Duty, The Edge of Love, The Goob, The Whale, Banana etc.
I used BOOM's 'Trains' in 'Ripper Street S3'. They featured in the opening episode. They are a great set of recordings covering steam engines to modern electric trains. The 'Train' library was useful in Ripper street to obtain period locomotive sounds which I used for INT, EXT, carriages, pass bys, driving etc…With steam trains being hard to record I found BOOM's 'Trains' a welcoming addition to my SFX library.
