I know a simple and inexpensive way to stop the trains blasting their horns at night through Crescent Beach and White Rock.
Instead of the City of White Rock spending $10 million to make changes that will not stop the train horn blasts, BNSF can be made to use one of its trucks with rail wheels and one of its workers to operate it 500 feet in front of the trains and clear the way for all their trains from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m. Under this plan, the engineers would not have to blast their horns through the night.
They have the equipment and the staff already employed to do this. This is a simple and instant procedure.
