Union Pacific Railroad / train locomotive horn testing

Denver, CO, United States
Contact information:

In early 2011 Union Pacific Railroad began testing the locomotive horns for its Western region in the middle of Denver, Colorado. While the testing is mandated by the Federal Railroad Administration, the location is not. UP decided to test here because it is most convenient for them. However, it is very inconvenient for hundreds of nearby business and homes, many of the occupants of which cannot talk on the phone, talk to each other, think or sleep due to the noise which is 110db. We have beseeched UP to stop, and their only response is to send a lawyer to act as a sounding board for our complaints, i.e. they will not stop the testing. Our neighborhood is committed to stopping it and you can see our Facebook page about this.
