I did not realize the importance of train whistles and horns until the responses to my recent letter about them were published in the paper.

The railroads should consider modifying how they sound warnings, perhaps a longer, single blast as opposed to repeated ones or maybe three short toots. Either would be better for when the trains travel through residential areas.
