    From its use in a documentary about the upgrade to St Pancras International Station, I always associate Philip Glass’ Company with train travel. The suite always evokes a feeling of fast, sleek, elegant travel in me. Company II in particular sounds like travelling through tunnels, to burst out at high speed into the light and scenery to be dazzled, before disappearing into another tunnel to repeat again in another glorious valley. I recommend a listen.

    Love the idea of making an album on a train. I have a few nostalgic tunes I associate with train travel (the intro/outro music for Shining Time Station, and “I know how the moon must feel” from the 2000 film Thomas and the Magic Railroad.
