I assume when you use the term "light rail" you are talking about BART.

See http://g.co/maps/bvzh6 for a map I created showing the Bart tracks, and proposed Warm Springs South BART Station (Roberts is to the left of the blue icons).

Also, while it's always best to experience environmental conditions personally with your own two ears and eyes, here's a sample “environmental noise” video I shot for a client just north of the Fremont Station: http://youtu.be/pGix303gpSE

Kaybear:

The future BART tracks are approx. 400' from this home. http://goo.gl/maps/XOZWW

If noise is a concern, you may want to find an area where the active BART track is ~400' away to approximate the sound level.

The closest light rail station is currently the Fremont Station for BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit). It’s located at 2000 BART Way in Fremont, exactly 3 miles away. As Steve pointed out, the new BART extension will hopefully provide an Irvington Station that will be closer to you. If noise is a concern, Roberts is too far away from the new tracks for any substantive noise issues.

Wow! Steve, I assume you've listened to that with earphones which gives a much more real audio experience. Very good.

I didn't realize we were talking about BART. I thought the question was referring to JB's Madera to Bakersfield multi-billion dollar high speed rail system. With our State's current debt service I hardly think we need be thinking about HSR until we get out of this mess which I don't see happening anytime soon. But then that's just my built in cynicism at work.

BTW, I think I mentioned that Janis and I would be visiting SF from March 2-8? Let's try to meet up somehow.
