Next evening was a lovely evening, and I walked out early to enjoy it. The sun was not quite down when I traversed the field-path near the top of the deep cutting..
Above there is the sound recording and the text of a snippet of The Signalman by Charles Dickens. Try to make a phonetic transcription of the passage as pronounced by the speaker, Tony Fao.

With thanks to Tony Fao and Librivox and to Petr Rösel and Emilio Márquez for corrections.
