This mix began with a recommendation from a follower on Mixcloud, Paul Asbury Seaman. I asked for any train tunes he could suggest and he really came through, mapping out a whole mix for me.

Here's what Paul said about the mix...

"Berlin School synth/electronica can be pretty kinetic and thus an obvious source for a train mix, but I was going for a more melancholy sound, the wistful feeling evoked by the sound of Far Away Trains Passing By (the title of the Ulrich Schnauss album represented here). My working title for this mix was "Locomotive Lullaby."

Thanks Paul!

Thanks a lot Low Light Mixes - love the theme of this one.
It inspired me to make my first mixcloud show: "Those Who Go: Music for Departures", which is the soundtrack of my own feelings of anticipation, excitement and nostalgia when departing to new places.

Your tracklist looks great! I'll definitely give it a listen. Anything with Eberhard Weber in it is worth a listen for me. Cheers!

Absolute loved this one, well deserved to be placed at #1 on all the related charts. Also, glad to be informed of the "Berlin School" sub-genre.

As always it's a pleasure to listening to you. I used this subject once to play with. Not so musical. A bit more soundscaping. only a experiment. Thank you so much, to give us so many good vibes.

Really enjoyed this- and it reminded me that I'd recently been thinking about a few train-infused ambient/electronic tracks (ahem) from the past...
Love on a real train- Tangerine Dream,
Last train to Lhasa- Banco de Gaia,
Suburban Train- Tiesto...

Good suggestions! As a matter of fact I used that Tangerine Dream track on an earlier train-themed mix, which you can find here...

I'm not familiar with the third one, but those first two are definitely classics.
