Big film composers like Hans Zimmer are a busy sort, usually working on multiple projects at once, so they need to spice things up from time to time. Zimmer does so by trying out unique instruments. On the upcoming Lone Ranger, that unique instrument is a train. Yeah, like a train-train. It was used as the score's "rhythm and bass line." In an interview with LA Weekly, he explained his neighbor, The X-Files creator Chris Carter, has an old train. "I said, 'Chris, do you mind if I come over with a tape recorder and a sledgehammer, and we do some unspeakable things to your train?'" Carter agreed and Zimmer then transferred his train recordings into a programmable drum kit he used for the film. However, if he turned a drum kit into a train, now that would be something.
