Excessive braking, horn use among complaints

 by Nicole Rodman

    Train traffic is a fact of life in the Greater Dundalk area — part of the cost of doing business.
    For one longtime Dundalk resident, however, that cost has gotten a little too high.
    The resident (who asked not to be identified) contacted The Eagle complaining of what he characterized as “excessive” noise coming from the trains traveling around the Dundalk Marine Terminal.
    He specified the train crossing at Dunhill Road as a particular example of his complaint.
    According to the resident, the issue began when Norfolk Southern began operating on the rails once used by Conrail.
    In 1997, CSX and Norfolk Southern purchased Conrail. Since then, Norfolk Southern has operated at the Port of Baltimore (and across Maryland).
