Here’s a great adventure for train lovers of all ages…a visit to Tower A, overlooking all the train tracks that come in and out of Union Terminal, home of the Cincinnati Museum Center. The men and women of the Cincinnati Railroad Club are always in Tower A during the museum hours to talk trains with every visitor.
Cincinnati officials are studying a plan to make it quieter for some residents who live in neighborhoods with a lot of train traffic.
Train engineers are required to blow their horns one-quarter mile before each roadway crossing.
It’s the same pattern each time, two long blasts, followed by a short and then another long one.
Since sound travels, some residents hear it a lot especially when there are several crossings located close together.
