Caltrain has announced that nighttime training of new train engineers may disrupt the sleep of nearby residents for several weeks. The training started on April 11 and runs through May 24, and may occur from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m., Monday through Thursday, and also during some daytime and weekend hours.
Jayme Ackemann, Caltrain's government affairs officer, warns "communities located near the corridor will notice an increase in horn noise and gate down time during the overnight hours as the training runs operate through their area."
The training will also take place on weekends when trains may be running at off-schedule times but will not pick up passengers.
The training is planned to make the new engineers more familiar with local crossings and other local characteristics.
