"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.)
