There are train tracks a 1/4 mile behind our house. I grew up with a train running several times a day behind our house in Elk Grove, so you'd think I wouldn't even hear it.
I hear it.

What I thought was my neighbor warming up their car at 5:45 am has really been a train idling on the tracks for 30 minutes every morning.

The train goes by 3-4 times a day. Half of the time it sits and idles for what seems like forever. It unsettles the dogs. So not only do I have to listen to the gentle hum of a train engine, I also get to try and calm growling and barking dogs.

I do not like the train.
