Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
Why are we having an editorial, city council discussion or any discussion whatsoever about silencing the train horns?
I am almost positive that the trains and crossings were all in place prior to any of the complainants moving into their present establishments.
I have been in Manteca for 29 years and live off of Union Road. My lot backs up to the train. I knew this when I moved in. If I didn’t want the train as my “neighbor” I would have looked elsewhere. The horns are there for multiple reasons. I would be willing to bet that if they were silenced or reduced and someone suffered a tragedy all of the blame would be pointed at the railroad or the city. Get over it folks, if you don’t like the noise, move!
