  1. Just to clarify my comment to City Council, the train I was speaking about comes at 3:00AM every evening. It is a long, heavy cargo train that runs for 15-20 minutes. I have spoken to 10+ people in my neighborhood who are disturbed by the train traffic, and this train in particular. I am asking the City to do a better job monitoring the frequency, duration, loudness and vibration of trains. Amtrak trains fly through and are light and quick. A 200 car lumbering, fully loaded cargo train with 5 engines thunders along, rumbling and vibrating the whole neighborhood. China cabinets clank, shower doors clatter back and forth and dressers shake. I proposed the City measure the seismic vibrations of some of these trains. I don’t think there would be mich of a difference with small earthquake readings. Is this what we want for Lake Forest? Are the train lines being responsible running trains of this composition? I don’t think it is too much to ask our City leaders to look into this. Yes, there is something we can do! We should expect nothing less.
