Running Silent in Detroit

As you know, I’ve been in India for about a week now and no, I didn’t make a special trip back to the USA for this post. Still, this train was pretty cool so I wanted to put up the video (even though it is a few weeks later).

Inside the Detroit airport there is a train. INSIDE.

This train is so quiet, that unless you look right at it and see it going by, you wouldn’t even notice it. This video was shot at full-volume and is delivered to you at the same.


For comparison, compare the train noise to the airport announcement you can hear.

    Lots of airports have people movers these days.

    Yep that’s true. It was not the people mover so much as the total lack of noise that I found impressive. Especially after living next to Chicago’s elevated train! The people from the CTA and the airport people mover companies really need to talk.
