    Living near tracks

    Hi Terry, I just spoke to someone at the post office right down the street and they said it isn't bad... a train about every 3 or 4 hours which is doable. Again, Thanks!

    Living near tracks

    Hello out there! I am considering purchasing a house near some tracks. It is a very rural area on an acre and the side track is 215 feet away and the main track is 3 football fields away. Is there anyway online to check the traffic on either track?
