LETTERS: Better way to sound alarm

Editor:

White Rock is experiencing all the pains of seven or eight mile-long coal trains trundling through daily.

The intermittent two-second toots that accompany the coal portrays a stubbornly, heavily congested line where holiday makers imagine they’re in a shopping mall and reluctant to move aside.

I’m about half a mile away and, frankly, it’s driving me bonkers. Even the empty trains carry out the same routine upon their return.

I was wondering whether the more pleasant sound of music couldn’t emanate from their rustic bowels?

Donald C. Chivers, White Rock
