Letter: Tortured by train tremors in Kamloops


I have called CN Rail and I have sent an email regarding the tremendous vibrations caused daily by speeding, loaded freight trains.

It’s really ridiculous having to endure the shaking of your bed and the rest of your furniture, day and night.

It’s like a major earthquake.

I have recently moved here and never before had to put up with such tremors.

For the most part — perhaps 75 per cent of the time — the trains travel at a reasonable speed of approximately 30 to 40 k/hr.

They travel at speeds of 50 to 60 km/h the rest of the time.

There are approximately 2,000 residents living along this stretch of railway.

I guess a petition is the best way to get some action as I really don’t want to move.
