Conrail freight train in the middle of the night blow a whistle too much in Burlington wakes people in the night. It was a lot of complains to the city and other oficials nobody dont know how to solve this problem.This is basic solution- install railway dams on some intersections and create,, quiet zones,,.What do you think ?.

When you move to an area that has trains nearby, you have NO grounds to complain about the noise.The trains are noisy,but nessecary to deliver products and have been there longer than people,who could have chosen ANYWHERE to live. Railway Dams will not work because they only buffer the noise where they are used,and you cant install noise barriers the entire length of railway.

Hey Dale,

I've lived in the same place in Burlington for 38 years and they didn't start obnoxiously blowing the whistle at 3am every night until a couple months ago. Blowing the whistle in 20 second spurts over and over is ridiculous. I'm almost a mile away but with a whistle that loud it wakes people up anyway.

Before you make a comment, make sure you know what you are talking about.

First,you ask people what they think about your idea, than when you get a response, you tell them they dont know what they are talking about. Get a life! Either move or get over it! There aint no solution cause the train is doing what it's suppose to!

That Conrail train does not have to be that loud!!! There's working people that need sleep. The traffic at that time is not bad and every intersection has a signal light. It's crazy.!!!!!!!

I completely agree! I have the riverline literally feet from my house. When they blow the whistle its isnt half as loud as the Conrail one. I wouldnt even mind it so much if they didnt blow it literally every 2 minutes and in short very loud bursts all night long. Its constant at night and like someone outside your bedroom blowing a hand held airhorn every few minutes while you attempt sleep. Last night the trains must not have been running or the horn blower had the night off, and I actually had a few hours uninterrupted sleep! I could understand the argument that the trains have been here longer then me, however typewriters have been around longer then me, as well, and with technology comes the time when some updates are needed. This horn reaches a far far distance. You cant escape it in this area.

As a side, I live in Bordentown, so we are getting it up here, too. Its not a matter if "just dont move there" the trains are not even near us. You wouldnt even know about the noise unless it was late night. Im fine with the riverline, but their horns are cake next to the Conrail ones.
