Footage that is typical on weekdays. This area of Frogtown overlooks the Metrolink Central Maintenance Facility less than 400' from many houses in the neighborhood. Decibel readings are from 70 to 85. Weekdays starting at 7:10 am until approx. 5:30 pm. 4-6 locomotives are serviced simultaneously for a minimum of an 1 1/2 hours each. Typically a 3 hour break, from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm (not always). After 8:30 pm the overflow traffic begins. Usually it's a single train that idles anywhere from an 1 1/2 hours to 4 hours. Friday nights it is known to idle until 10:00 AM the next day. Also locomotives are known to start at 2:00 am to 4:00 am in the morning. Both the noise pollution and DPM is evident here. Conversation can not be had between two people during this time.
