The trains run at all different times. I live 6 blocks from a crossing and you can here them, especially at night when it's quiet out. Wyandotte is a nice city though ...good luck.

Wyandotte is a great city, as a life long resident i agree that the trains are a drawback, but i have lived either 6 blocks away or 1 house away and after a while you don't even here them anymore. Most annoying thing about them is getting stuck by one when you are already running late. lol.
Good Luck

Try another area. Really. The town is too small. Lots of gossip. And the area smells because of the waste treatment plant. It's hard to find anyone to admit it though. People get really upset when you bring these things up. If you grew up in a small town you'll be just fine.

I live one block from the RR tracks, south side for a little over 16 years now... I'm not too sure about the schedule (I'm a lil use to it now) but... I would def check into how much stress these trains put on a house, let a house. These old houses are made of plaster, no basements & bad foundation. I'm not too sure if the trains contribute to the sinking or slanting or cracking of houses, but I do know my house does vibrate, and some things upstairs can rattle (like my lil metal make up table w glass). The city built a hill w trees wich has helped out w sound a lot. I believe you can call the city and they can guide you from there...
