I live in Bay Village, thankfully 4 blocks from the tracks, and grew up in Berea about 4 blocks from the tracks. Thank goodness our steel neighbor is Norfolk and Southern. Their trains are new, wheel sets new and quiet, but the horns are ridiculous. There should certainly be a restriction on horn volume or track usage after
9 pm. Since there are alternative routes available to N&S, maybe restricting use of the northern track should be considered. Certainly blowing that fog horn 100 feet from homes isn't the answer after dark. They don't need the line. It really belongs as part of the transit system in Greater Cleveland. A Sandusky, Vermillion, Lorain, Rocky River, Lakewood and Cleveland connection would just make too much sense, wouldn't it?

I don't know what would be worse. My pot-puffing neighbor, his dirtball friends and their ghetto blaster roaring out "music" all day?
