I hear a rumbling noise begin quietly, then grow louder and louder, building up to a noise explosion as the train comes into the station.
I hear the beeping sound and the doors open and close.
I hear the clacking sound of the track, a constant soundtrack to people silently reading newspapers and books on the train.
I hear children giggling or crying amidst the shuffling footsteps.
I also hear buskers playing music, which mingles with the noise of passengers and the station announcements.
