And who says Dublin isn't on the wrong side of the tracks?..BTW the golf club at Dublin...Bankrupt, in receivership, trying to use lawyering to get out of paying the note...must be those cheap windows they put in those houses that let all that noise from train horns in...

Well, you build a house close to railroad tracks and the Quisenberry's are surprised that trains use the tracks. Maybe the Quisenberry's can sell their house and move to the OSU airport on Sawmill Road and complain about the noise from the airplanes.

I fail to understand why the Quisenberry's want their name splashed in this news article, they come off looking very unintelligent for purchasing a house so close to railroad tracks and then complaining about the trains.

The TRAINS were there MANY years before the houses. If the owners are THAT STUPID not to see RR tracks, then to darn bad.

We moved to Columbus 6 years ago from an area of the country that did not have much freight rail. We knew we were moving near tracks and thought we were making an educated decision. Our first day in our home we heard the whistle and realized that this is not something we would get used to. I would hate to think that we were idiots or unintelligent; just naive about federal laws mandating the whistle and about how loud the whistles are.

The Quisenberrys did not write the federal quite zone regulations nor did they set aside the money for the program. They simply asked Dublin to consider the upgrades. Something that many other cities in OH have done and Hilliard is currently doing on the same rail line. I have local gov. experience and if they whined or demanded anything of the DCC, the vote would not have been unanimous.

If we adults are willing to get this nasty under the cloak of anonymity, it is no wonder that cyber bullying is such a problem in schools. Your frustration should be aimed at the program not the Quisenberrys.

Come On !!!
It's not a new thing that trains must sound the horn at crossings...

Moving from an unpopulated area to a city, you should expect more noise of all kind........
Not much freight traffic on the track by your old place....and you thought that's what all tracks were like......
If you lived next to a small county airport......and moved next to Port Columbus.....and then be suprised by the noise !!!!!

For that kind of money I would expect not to see any neighbors... let alone paying that much money for a house next to a train track!!! Wow, and you are the so called "educated" ones. I guess my dad was right, you can't buy common sense!!

I can't help myself.

So the Quisenberrys have enough money to buy a house in Ballantrae but aren't smart enough to see railroad tracks and think "noise"? The fact that there were tracks there should be a pretty good indicator of what could happen. Now they want my tax money to bail them out? Really? There are enough crossings in this state that need replaced for safety reasons, not so the Quisenberrys can get a good night sleep.

If you don't like trains, don't live near railroad tracks. Money doesn't always equal smarts.

I understand we have lived in Hilliard for 20+ years and they are really ridiculous. I am proud that we have some smart people out there trying to do something.
To explain myself a bit, I saw the tracks next to our new build and knew that it would be noisey and I accepted it. It's just that some trains really lay on the horn a lot lot more then they need.
