That's true Steve. I will set a level with the meters first, then use the headphones for monitoring . I hope to get a lot of practice in on trains down here before I head to the US! But I know that the locosin the States are a lot louder than ours..LOL

Re: recording railroad audio??

Thanks John, most commercial shows do a average to horrible job of train (loco) audio, especially to die-hard railfans like me! The best audio I've heard so far is on dedicated train DVDs' and on you-tube from railfans out there trying new things. As I've discovered by the great reply's on this forum, I have a lot of things to learn and try, especially since I'm not in a controlled environment, but it will be a lot of fun.I got my NX3 and Zoom H5 today, so a lot of reading to do!
Thanks for the info.
Cheers Gregg
