It’s the bells, not the whistles
Re: Imagine New West without train whistles (NewsLeader, May 28)
I live on the ninth floor at the InterUrban building at Begbie and Front streets.
Whistles are not the problem. Whistles come and go, so what.
What annoys most in this building is the constant ringing of the crossing gate bells, sometimes for 30 minutes or longer—ding ding ding ding ding ding, and so on.
Why do the trains sit in the crossing so long?
I thought there was a gate being put up so the crossing would have no whistles or bells?
