If it kills you, why would you move there. Did you not know a railyard was there.
If it kills you why don't you move away, beats dead all to heck.
Kinda like buying a house at the end of a airport runway and then complaining about the noise.

Great. More clueless residents getting in bed with CARB and the AQMD over "their" quality of life. This just gives these agencies a reason to exist and continue to cost all of us money and loss of jobs.
As Billy stated - "Did you not know a railyard was there?"
Anyone who knowingly moves in to an area adjacent to railyards, industrial complexes, airports, refineries, sewage treatment plants, etc. doesn't have a reason to complain. The sources of your "malaise" or "lack of quality" were there before you arrived. Deal with your choices.

While I mostly agree with your sentiment Billy, with the sprawl in SoCal somebody is going to have to end up living by a railyard, airport, industrial complex, refinery, power plant, sewage treatment plant. Or on the other hand your have the NIMBYs who won't let any new infrastructure be built.
The whole thing is it has diminishing returns at some point. Cleaning up rail yards benefits everybody's lungs , more so for those close to the yard but still helps everybody. Heck if we can get dust from China that PM from many miles away can still affect you.
But protesters and regulators often take it too far. The only real clean no polluting option is to do nothing at all but that's just not feasible.
