Professional quality sound recording project

I are looking for professional quality recordings of a diesel locomotive engine sounds including start, throttle, run and shutdown.

Project description updated. Please update your bids accordingly.

Use case: To be used in model railroading layouts.

Key requirements:
1. Clarity: Since the sound will be repetitive, and played quite often, at high volumes, it has to be clear with no artifacts. In other words, museum-quality is what we are looking for.
2. Models: Most diesel locomotives from the past 5-6 decades will be good candidates. Ideally we will prefer them to be from models that are generic and popular in North America, if possible.

3. Sounds:
- Start
- Revv or throttle
- Idle
- Shutdown
- Horn
- Bell

4. Number: We would like at least 3-5 locomotives' sounds.
5. Timeline: To be delivered in 1-2 weeks
6. Additional details: Please include photos of the locomotive, model number, and 'manufacturer's plaque' if available.

Further details based on discussions with bidders:
7. Usage: this sound will be played over and over in a model train layout all day, everyday, at high volumes, by the same user or group of users listening to it everyday. The sound has to be very pure and devoid of any background contamination
8. Rights: we will need exclusive rights to use and edit the sounds for all purposes including commercial.

Skills: Audio Production, Audio Services, Music, Sound Design
