Yesterday I had an opportunity to drive over to Durand, Michigan, and while in town I went over to the old historic depot. This is on the National Register of Historic places and is a really neat old structure. Now Durand is a busy railroad town and has many crossings in the downtown area. What surprised me were the signs at the crossings that said "No Train Horn" whether or not there were gates or signals.
I have never seen this and actually thought it was the law for trains to sound warnings as they approached crossing but apparently that isn't true. I have found other cities were there are 'quiet zones' and trains are not allowed to sound warnings which seems to be rather dangerous. The signs have to meet federal guidelines. Has anyone else seen this?
