freight train outside my apartment
« on: March 25, 2006, 10:53:35 PM »
Please help!



I have lived here for the past 10 months and thought I would get used to the noise but it's just getting more and more annoying  (train whistles & bells--all day and night).



It is an older building but I'm not sure of the dimensions.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!



Try some headsets- see: http://www.soundproofing.org/sales/ear_muffs.htm

Hi gp,

Unfortunately for you, the sound of train whistles is designed to go through everthing - so you will hear it miles away in order for you to get out of the way.  And the vibration of the train cars on the rails transmits through the ground into everything for miles and miles.  Headsets or moving are both viable options.
