Train Whistle Committee Gets Rolling

Last fall, the Town of Onalaska Board named a committee to deal with loud train whistles...

That committee is now getting started with its study of noise laws and community needs. Committee member Marc Schultz says many of the old-timers in Brice Prairie have no complaints about trains passing through at night. But newer residents seem to be bothered more easily.  Schultz says there's no timetable for proposing solutions to the train-whistle problem. Some parts of La Crosse have been declared 'quiet zones' to keep the trains from blowing those whistles at certain times.
