For everyone in general. You can work with the local government to establish what is called a Quiet Zone. If other necessary safety measures are in place they can work with the railroad company so they don't have to blow the horns. That's by far the most obtrusive sound that will wake the dead. If someone is worried about the lack of that extra bit of safety there are two answers. One is why is anyone ignoring flashing lights, crossing, guards, and flashing lights in the first place? At that point it's an idiot going around the guards and ignoring the signs. The other answer is horns can be placed at the crossings that point toward the roadways oncoming traffic and reduce the sound that gets directed throughout the neighborhood.

This way the trains perform their function without being an unnecessary nuisance and make it more palatable to perspective home buyers if they at least know they won't end up on the ceiling fan when the horn on the train blows.

I'm in the process of working with my community as the track goes through actually new housing areas through a long stretch.

This house is off the market. If you'd like help finding a great home before someone else buys it, give me a call. The Spring market is in full swing and there are great homes at great prices but they're going fast.
Thanks and take care,
