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.

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.
