You guys need to stop with the silly false safety concerns. Just admit you like trains, and you get excited when you hear the horn.
Guilty as charged. Love trains, love a good train horn.
I also admit to living just far enough away from it to remember how "pleasant" it was to hear at 2am (not a joke) and then hear the rumble as it went by. And it's interesting that my non-railfan neighbors mentioned it the next day.
However, I have real concerns, justifiable or not, regarding safety zones. I asked some of the locals about it, they all know about it being a quiet zone. Same concerns.
Sh*t breaks - and a massive train barreling through a crossing without a horn without sounding....? Two planes flying across the ocean in opposite directions should NEVER be close to enough to hit each other, but THAT almost happened just last week...
At some point down the line, it'll happen... and it may seem trite to be concerned but I was always taught safety-first....
Just my two-cents.
