A railroad company is rejecting Cincinnati's request to reduce train horn noise in the city's Hartwell neighborhood and other nearby communities.
CSX Transportation said in a June letter to the city's transportation and engineering department it will not approve the use of wayside horns along it tracks running through Hartwell. It would have also benefited Wyoming, Lockland, Woodlawn and Glendale.
Cincinnati Council could approve a report next month that would let the city move forward with a plan to reduce the noise freight trains make when traveling through some neighborhoods. The idea is to set-up a quiet zone especially for overnight train traffic.
