Markham and Trains

GO train

If you live in Markham, or, I suppose, anywhere along the GO train line in southern Ontario, this might be of interest to you.  Yes, trains are good; having commuters not using cars is wonderful.  BUT – Transport Canada has a rule that requires trains to sound their whistle/horn at crossings where “…there isn’t infrastructure — like train arms — to alert drivers and pedestrians of a coming train.”

There is a number of people in Markham who have been trying to get the train horn noise stopped, or at least decreased.  Apparently little has changed since they started to complain.

Read a CBC article on the issue here.

And here is a video from two years ago about the protests. Seems like little has changed.
