Paul Reddam answered:
Do freight trains run on the tracks next to Woodrow in the Crestview area?
No! Buying a home backing to a RR track is not a good idea (unless it is being sold for VERY little) I don't care what runs on it. Sorry, my advice is move on and find a better choice.

How safe /annoying to live near rail tracks in North Central Austin?
If resale is important to you, yes run the other way. When considering resale - the question you should ask is - will this run off buyers in the future? My opinion is that it will.

Houseguest not on the lease and now wants to come back to take more stuff
Dear Nomad,
I have to agree, you need a lawyer not a realtor. We are not qualified to give legal advice, only help you buy or sell a home. I wish you the best of luck!
