This audio archive is a collection of sounds recorded on the train between Benevento and Avelino in Southern Italy. The rail line was shut down in October 2012 as a part of a larger reduction process of public transport in the area. Signe Lidén recorded the sounds of the train, its stations and surroundings during the summer of 2012.

All sounds are uploaded on and free for download. For downloading the aporee-app, click here. A radio essay can be heard here.
