Last year an Effingham city official told me that the agreement with the CN Railroad to create quiet railroad crossings would take effect in July 2019.

As of this writing the trains are still sounding TOOOOOOOT, TOOOOOOOT, TOOT, TOOOOOOOT at every crossing night and day. I estimate the number of trains passing through Effingham daily to be about 452 ... Or at least it seems like it in the middle of the night.

Please report an update on this issue.
