Are you living near a train in Arvada or considering a purchase? This is a really personal question. Some people like the sound of the train and think it is nostalgic and is music to their ears. Some clients relocating here from the East coast and used to a lot of noise don't mind it. Of course there are others that can't stand it and can't sleep. It would be good for you to find a friend who lives near the train tracks and spend the night to see if it affects you negatively. I live a couple of blocks south of the tracks in Park Hill and sometimes hear the the whistle blowing late at night and it is kind of a nice calming sound. If I were closer to it I don't know how I would like it.. But even if it does not bother you it could conceivably have an impact on your resale value. Good luck with your decision.

By the way, Train that goes through my neighborhood moves very slow and they are may be 4 to 6 times per day.
For your information Down Town Arvada is a unique area that Train goes through it. Down Town Arvada is a fast growing area with rail road track that soon will have a Light Rail Station. With that in mind property value in WTV and Down Town has risen since people have noticed the Train Station construction began. In WTV Rowhome prices are up about 17% since early 2012.
