Letter: Noise from trains likely to affect activities at new park

Dan Colglazier


To the editor:

As a retired Conrail field terminal supervisor who actually worked in the depot that used to be located along the tracks on Indianapolis Avenue in downtown Seymour, I find it interesting that the city is willing to spend large amounts of money on a park between the three tracks.

It was recently reported that train traffic will be increasing in the coming months. The trains are required by law to blow their horns at each crossing.

The north and southbound trains must blow their horn at the U.S. 50 crossing and St. Louis Avenue crossing. Trains making the switch must blow their horn at the U.S. 50 crossing and again at Broadway Street. The east- and westbound trains must blow their horns at Broadway Street and again at Indianapolis Avenue.
