Recording setup for 2 people in an office

We want to capture eight hours at a time of conversation in an office, for editing later. There are two people at separate desks. What equipment is needed, within the sweet spot between "sounds good enough" and "affordable"? The end result should be 2 separate audio files, editable in Audacity. Paint me a picture of the setup you'd use for this.

"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?
