Being a resident of south st....these trains are a complete nuisance and are constantly blaring the horns and constantly crashing into one another with the sound of metal grinding against metal from literally 8am-5pm and sometimes even on frickin Sundays. I would have no problem if they just ceased to exist. For residents in the area, these trains are completely annoying and the fact that they just blare the horns for no apparent reason (there are NO crossings that would require the horns to be blared ALL OF THE TIME!) seriously sucks. I'm looking into contacting the proper individuals to make a formal noise complaint about these trains. They suck.
I must say that I for one am NOT "impressed" by your trolling post in this thread.
May I remind you that if it were not for those "annoying" trains in your area, there would be LESS jobs and LESS tax revenue in your area.
As for the "noise complaint," good luck. Since they're obviously ceasing and desisting their noise from 5pm until 8am, thus allowing most of your neighborhood to sleep peacefully during those hours, then I'd wager you've not much of a legal leg to stand on.
What's more, even if you grew up right there on South St, I can GUARANTEE those trains were there FIRST!
Those tracks have been active since before WW2. They were hauling steel into the shipyards to build the battleships that won that war. They never ceased operating. This is not some new thing.
Oh, but ok, let's do that, let's force the RR to close, send away the jobs and the tax base because YOU think "trains suck."
Good luck with that.
