The noise from the trains are nice to hear.

COMPARED TO!

Try doing something about the noise from the loud car stereos with the loud bass that vibrates the windows and the ground as they travel up and down the streets of Fort Collins!

Most of the complainers about trains have selective hearing; they only hear trains!

In simple terms they are deaf in one ear and can't hear out of the other ear!

Besides the train noise was here long before an of use in present day Fort Collins.......

The loud car stereos are much worse than 30 trains!

Wake up and listen in the areas in others places in the city!

The trains are bad, but so are the wiggers that are beginning to infest the area. I hope WA doesn't have wiggers.

I agree with GetReal. There are 2 railroads within earshot of my house, and I enjoy hearing the trains go by.

There are a few kids in my neighborhood who drive around with their music and subs on full at all hours of the night. It really pisses me off. I've got 4 10" Kickers in my vehicle, but I always turn them down before entering a neighborhood, and especially if it is nearing the evening. I wish others (especially my own generation) had enough respect to do the same.

Worse than the trains and idiots with blaring car stereos are all the ignorant residents who allow their dogs to bark relentlessly, without redirection, disturning the peace of all who live within ear shot.

eh.. I don't enjoy the engineer who holds the horn down for 5 minutes straight at 4 am. But I bought my house knowing there was a train near by. Just don't understand why they need to incessantly hold the horn when there aren't any intersections? As for the loud music, we don't get that in my neighborhood.
