I’m not sure what is going on with the trains passing through White Rock these last couple months, but they sure seem to be giving the finger to White Rock residents.
We may have only lived here 10 months, however we sure notice lately that day and night the train horns blow at almost a constant bellow as they travel from one end of White Rock to the other.
Not so bad in the day time, but at all hours of the night too?
Is it really necessary to keep your finger on the horn as you enter city limits and not stop until you reach the other side? Are there truly dozens of partiers all night long on the tracks that you have to alert to your BC Ferry-size presence?
Thank goodness we live further from the tracks now. Can’t imagine what that sound would be like down on Marine Drive!
Has there been some meeting with the railroad that our illustrious city council have succeeded in annoying, and this is their payback? (‘Law laid down’ on whistles, Oct. 7; Train blasts to persist, Oct. 9.)
