Wheel Squeal Arduino

Hi
I have made a device that plays a recording of wheel squeal when a train travels along a curved section of track on my layout.
It uses an IR emitter/receiver, an Arduino and a DFPlayer (MP3).
I have been searching for sound files via Google but have only found a few that aren't very suitable. 
Can anyone point me to a video that somewhere includes wheels squealing.
Thanks in advance.

Cool!  Here is a sample video that has almost nothing but flange squeal, especially around the 30 min mark:


rrphotographer65 has many more such examples on his channel.  I hope you'll post your results.

Great, thanks.  I'm not surprised the location is Tehachapi
