I want sound walls!!!!

Resident upset over lack of sound walls in rail project

You know this is one of those things you just have to shake your head and laugh about. Ok, she is worried about her precious little children getting hurt by debris falling off the tracks. I am sure some anti-transit zeolot would love to run with this to claim how bad commuter trains are. However, we are not talking about trains going into an area that has never seemed them before. Last time I checked that little rail line has been there for more than a hundred years and it is a very busy freight line.

Shouldn't she be more worried about all those Union Pacific freight trains that are constantly going back and forth over a passenger train on its own dedicated set of tracks?
