The wayside horns at the railroad crossings at Fanning Drive and Steves Boulevard may sound a little different soon as city of Flagstaff officials test to find out if there is a horn noise that may be more palatable for residents on the east side of the city.

The city is taking up this issue after Matt Nichols, a resident in the Swiss Manor neighborhood, gathered signatures on a petition asking the city council to remove the wayside horns. The horns were installed around 2010, when the city and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railway agreed to stop the trains from blaring their horns when they passed the five at-grade crossings in the city.
