Committee Weighs Request for Train Horn Waiver

La Crosse is hoping for a special exception.   The city will ask the feds to continue a waiver from the Federal Train Horn Rule along a section of track that runs through the southside to City Brewery.  A train makes the trip in the very early morning now. Real close to city councilman Paul Medinger's place



But Medinger says that noise won't be so much like a background sound if the feds say no to La Crosse's waiver.  In that case, train engineers would have to sound horns before every crossing from the main line to the Brewery and back again.  A city committee votes on making the train horn request tonight.
