Come with us on a journey through sound.
An experiment in background noise.
Having seen so many people fall asleep on subway trains, I wonder if the sound only would also be somniferous.
Using my cellphone I recorded the ride (including boarding and alighting) on the Toronto subway (line 1) from College Station, north to Sheppard/Yonge Station. There was always at least one person sleeping (or at least appearing to be asleep) during the ride.

So far, listening to the recording has not put me to sleep.

It's been many a year since I was in Canada: are these the rubber wheeled ones?

hpr2492 :: An Evening Subway Ride
I recently moved to Atlanta, GA USA and it had been years since I used the local subway. Here they call it MARTA - Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority. It is a combination of subways and buses. This past weekend I decided to give MARTA a try. The Toronto subway sounds just like the Atlanta subway and no I didn't fall asleep. I rode the subway for three hours and only saw one person asleep.

Screeching Steel Wheels
The Toronto subway trains have steel wheels. The Montreal subway trains have rubber tires.

Sitting in a train, listening to a podcast of someone in a train.
