"When the evenin' train goes by..."

I'm heading up to Chatsworth, CA tomorrow night to record some train whistles. How far away from the tracks should I be to get that nice, misty, dreamlike faraway sound? And is there a particularly quiet/desolate part of town where I can sit for a few hours and gather said recordings? (Recommendations for other desolate, train-heavy spots within a two-hour drive also welcome.)

"You've got trouble coming!"

On Geir Jenssen's (AKA Biosphere) 2006 Album Cho Oyu 8201m - Field Recordings From Tibet, the song "Summit" features a speaking sample near the end where someone named Boutros calls in on a two-way radio and warns the other party of an oncoming typhoon. The next-to-last line of the conversation is "The good king in his infinite wisdom declared the two-way radio illegal in the mountains." Where is this sample from?
