I have waited 1 hour to 45 minutes waiting for the train. Why can't something be done to shorten the length of these trains

I have lived here for 30 years. The trains on Allen road and van horn are a disaster. This problem has become unbearable. There has to be something that can be done. I pay my taxes regularly, I feel that it's time for a change.i was able to detour via fort street but they are blocked due to the length of the trains. I also have witnessed ambulance's unable to get through,therefore causing potential life threatening lost of loved ones. All because an ambulance was blocked in.

Why not correct the problem? People should not have to address this issue time and again. R train profits more valuable than ambulances getting through?!how about citizens having to wait extended time because of these thoughtless trains?

The railroad company should put in a spur that goes around the train yard so that the trains won't be delaying traffic. Therefore, the train yard would pay for improvement instead of taking it out of the taxpayers $$. Then maybe the taxpayers $$ could be used to fill the potholes that are in desperate need of repair!

Why not have the train yard put in a spur? A track to go around the train yard so that the train is not delaying traffic. Therefore the train company puts up the $$ for improvement and not the taxpayers.
Then the taxpayers $$ could be used to take care of those potholes that our roads desperately need repair of!
Tell the train yard to lay some track to take up the slack of the extremely long trains. Have the trains take the detour.
