The Rutgers University Noise Technical Assistance Center conducted a long‐term acoustical study to assess the noise exposure of residents in Teaneck, NJ to noise associated with idling freight trains. One of the noise sources evaluated was idle‐related horn usage, at locations other than grade crossings. Trains on an adjacent track overtaking an idling locomotive regularly blow their horn as they approach and pass an idling train. The primary impact on the community due to this type of horn use… CONTINUE READING
