I think it would help if they stopped standing by the tracks all day.

It is truly an outrage that CP was able to lay those tracks in this neighborhood in the lasst couple of years so close to theese homes. It's not like the railroad has been there for 100 years and the peole moved in knowing full well there were train tracks nearby, is it?

Really? The most soothing sounds I can think of are falling rain, mild thunder, a distant train whistle, and the clickity-clack of of a nearby train. Lovely.

Another day, another nimby article on the Star tribune. Did they never think trains would pass by their home with pre existing railroad tracks by their home?

Trains moving mean people are working.

Surprise! Surprise! You move into a neighborhood with train tracks running through it and trains actually use them. Whoda thunk it?

maybe if the Keystone pipeline were open there would be less oil going through their neighborhood.

The sound of trains is the sound of money, and jobs. North American railroads are one of the largest groups hiring our returning vets. Get over it...
