LETTERS: Train horns easy to quell
I know a simple and inexpensive way to stop the trains blasting their horns at night through Crescent Beach and White Rock, and the trains from Blaine and back.
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 their trucks with rail wheels and their police officer to pilot and clear the way for all their trains from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m., 500 feet in front of the trains and the engineers would not be allowed 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.
