On January 8th 2013, BNSF Railroad put the Duke Road crossing back into service after it was closed for almost a year and a half. This crossing is protected by whistle boards and the trains that pass through Sienna will be whistling for this location as long as the whistle boards are in present. Long story short this explains why we the residents of Sienna have started to hear the horns over the last couple months. Prior to the removal of the (private) Duke Road crossing, SPRAI was exploring the option of creating of a Train Quiet Zone around Sienna, however there are significant factors limiting the likelihood it could occur According to BNSF this situation is a bad deal for Homeowners in Sienna because the Train whistle blasts that occur every-time a train passes through Sienna is making it difficult for so many residents. Unless we do something as a community the train whistle blasts will not go away. Tell BNSF to remove the Duke Road crossing whistle boards and stop the train whistle blasts in and around Sienna!
