At the sole discretion of the engineer, he may still sound the whistles for animals, pedestrians, vehicles,and wayside workers. The only thing you will not hear is the whistle, you will still hear the train... Safety should be number one in everyone's book. I have a hard time feeling sorry for someone who buys property next to train tracks then complains when they hear a train

zagsfan, totally agree with you. I have lived next to/or near the tracks all my life, and love the trains.

Trains have been in Minot since the 1880's but yet people that buy near the tracks complain due to noise? Pretty sure the trains were there first and you should have thought of that before buying. Foregoing safety because of noise seems a little silly.
