I would go absolutely nuts living near the station. Come to think of it, it must be very detremental to transit oriented development.
Good luck living next to rail crossing, the aholes in RR administration decided that its wise to sound your horn at every RR crossing 3 times no matter what pat of the day. Pathetic rules are pathetic.

It's not horrible. You get used to it.

One reason I don't like rail NIMBYs is that according to the ruler tool in Google Earth, my bedroom window is exactly 724 feet, or 220 meters, from a set of Union Pacific tracks that are generally pretty busy. I hear one right now as I type this, lol. There are two crossings nearby so the trains are blowing their horn at that point. It has never really bothered me. I like the sound. It tends to gradually rise in volume and then go away.

Are they? Nowadays they can make these horns more directional, e.g. louder directly in front of the beam. On the other hand, Japanese do seem to be better at distinguishing individual sounds from a cacophony of sounds, so they may not need to be as loud.

Amazing Cabin Ride of Mumbai Local..!! Bombardier Rake..!! The Fastest EMU



~Video Taken Under Proper Permissions~

Inside the Driver Cabin Of Bombardier EMU,in short, Mumbai's New local...

The 300th Video on my YouTube Channel..

The whole video is divide into 2 parts. Of which, the first video features the Coverage of some stations and places on Outer Suburban line of Virar - Dahanu Road..

The Video begins with a Bombardier Local train crossing Bombardier local train taken from a location like never before, from the Driver view of Local train..!!!

The part 1 Video features the cabin ride covers Boisar and Umroli Railway Station , Palghar Sidings entry, Kelve Road and Saphale Station entries, The 2 Bridges over the river Vaitarna and some Crossings...!!!

Video also shows an Instrument Fitted inside the Cabin, called A.W.S., or the Auxiliary Warning System, Manufactured by Siemens, used for Safety purpose under Over-speeding and Overshooting Cases.




Part 2 covers the Entry in Virar station, shipping some suburban stations like Nallasopara, Naigaon, Mira Road and Dahisar, some Crossings, overtakes and Finally, the comparison of Ulysses Speedometer with the train speedometer

I had kept my Phone GPS Speedometer besides the digital display to compare the Phone speedometer with the train meter.
For obvious reasons, Motormen are not allowed to use their phones during the duty except during the emergency cases like accidents.

No need to skip the video forward since the boring section is already been omitted and useful and informative part is only which is kept.

P.S.: Thanks to the polite Motorman who let me take the cabin ride AFTER taking assurance that I won't disturb his work as well as won't interfere any discussion with the Train mechanic present inside the cabin.
