Caroline, No

Southern_Pacific_Shasta

Note: the last song on the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds, “Caroline, No,” ends with railroad crossing bells, dogs barking, and a train rushing past.  The train is the “Owl” (Southern Pacific #58) as it speeds past Edison, California.  The  sound effect comes from an album of train recordings called, “Mr. D’s Machine” by Brad Miller (1963).
