Choo choo.

Thanks to its abundance of trains, Japan has no shortage of what have come to be known as densha otaku. These “train nerds” absolutely love trains and are always coming up with new and interesting ways to share this love with the rest of the world.  Take the case of a YouTube user going by the name of tp31p.

Tp31p’s YouTube channel is filled to the brim with videos of trains departing from and arriving at train stations (like the one below). In other words, most of tp31p’s channel is just plain boring to anyone who isn’t quite as passionate about locomotives as tp31p is.

However, not too long ago it seems that tp31p decided to use some of his/her extensive collection of train footage to do something much more artistic. Using nothing more than the sounds made by two trains, tp31p managed to very faithfully recreate what is quite easily one of the most popular and recognizable Vocaloid songs ever made: “Senbonzakura” (Thousand Sakuras). Check it out below.

Just in case, here’s the original.

Here’s hoping tp31p does an all-train sound cover of the Attack on Titan opening theme. Now that would be epic.

If you’re in the mood for more densha otaku content, check out the article below.
