Editor,

I’ve lived with a view out to the train tracks for 34 years and completely understand the occasional night work that is needed to improve transit and make Caltrain a better working operation. What I don’t understand, is why Caltrain, or any other operation for that matter, would be allowed to install a 24/7 industrial working operation (rail maintenance spur track and rail yard) with all the noise, lights, hazardous materials and sleep deprivation that such an operation would entail, directly beside a 100 percent residentially zoned neighborhood.

That is exactly what Caltrain has been sneaking in beside the tracks in the Hayward Park neighborhood between 10th and 14th avenues. This is an industrial operation. It needs to be located in an industrial area. End of story.
