Letter to the Editor: Train whistles a major disruption

Email News Alerts

Open letter to Sen. Collin Peterson and BN&SF Railroad:

We all need your help from the dreadful whistles in all the small towns along the railroad. I've always heard that anything above 80 decibels is damaging to our hearing.


A friend of mine used a meter and it was recorded at 130 decibels and when this person held her hands over her ears, the engineer blew the whistle more.
