"Does anybody know why SMART apparently has not tuned their horns?  Remember "Chewbaca?"  Some of their horns that I hear really are annoying, not so much because of the volume, but because of the tone. "

"The FRA was clearly just trying to find something to nullify the quiet zone and establish the horn rule again until testing is complete. I expect to see the quiet zone return by the end of the year."

"Yes, that's it!  The satellite photo doesn't show the gates at all.  I suspect the gates were a later addition.  They certainly aren't FRA certified crossing gates!  They're just livestock gates.  They…"
