He can hear that train a-idling
One can only imagine how hard it can be to have a train idling right outside your house as you raise a young family.
Sean Tantrum is a Dallas resident who knows exactly how it feels — and he’s hoping a future meeting between the city and CP Rail will help solve the problem.
Since last fall, CP Rail has used the area near Tantrum’s home as a staging area for its trains.
The resident said since the staging area moved, idling trains have been a noise problem for him, his wife and their young baby.
This week, Tantrum asked city council if there was any way the city could help him out.
Though the city has no legislative power over the rail company, a sympathetic council has agreed to ask representatives from CP to come to a meeting at a later date to discuss the issue.
