    Probably a bunch of rich people moving in next door then complaining about the noise. There is a town south of me that wants to ban railroad locomotives from blowing their horns. You buy a house next to train tracks and then complain about the noise??? A few years ago, the crossing in question were way out in the country.

    Horrible news, way too famous of a track to just close & be used to store broken down cars :(

    The train deal is absolutely true.
    In my area the homes are $500,000 to a million plus and they made them put up barriers between the lane and all the crossing are now no horn zones!
    It must of cost the train people millions of dollars to rebuild all the roads around the many many crossing around here!!!
    Plus they put a limit on the number of trains they can run on their own tracks that have probably been there 100 years??
    Way before there was more than a hand full of farm houses.

    I never ran my car there nor ever made it down to the track. However, it was on my list for 2018. Now its too late. Growing up in Northern NJ, one can not forget those Raceway Park commercials!
