Train Horns Sound in Medford After City's Whistle Ban Revoked

The city was given until 2010 to come into compliance when a federal law passed in 2006. The FRA waited another year before the status was revoked, an administration spokesman said. Continued

  1. These train horns are ridiculous. I live 100 feet from the train stop. My family can't sleep as there are over 60 trains passing by each day.

  2. It is 2011. A horn is the best form of safety? So much so that we are going to use it for hundreds of years. In the couple of hours I spent thinking about the issue of trains in my town I have come up with at least 3 better ideas. Who do I call? We solve problems all the time and this is nothing more than another problem. In fact I am sure it was a great solution back when the railway was invented. Lets move forward a couple of steps on this one.
