I live nearest the intersections of 44th & Cornhusker Hwy, and 33rd & Adams, which are considered to be “Quiet zones.” We’ve never had any issues with train horns late at night, but the last two nights, at all hours, we’ve been woken up 5-6 times (per night) to the sound of train horns blaring at those intersections. I’m unsure of why this has never been an issue before, but is all of a sudden. Any information would be much appreciated. Thanks,

Nick Pinegar

    Brian Clifford here, to whom it may concern..I understand that the company has to blow the horn at the intersections but there is no reason for the engineers to "just lay on on the horn the way they do". I live right next to the railroad crossing at the intersection of Route 53 (RT. 66) in Braceville Illinois. But at 4am. They must be Standing on the button, I think it just ridiculous for BNFS has to be like that... Please have a little consideration for our little town and neighbors and neighborhood! God bless and thank you for taking the time to read this. Choo, Choo!!
