BNSF Diaries

the train noise pollution started back in oct 2014 and just got louder and louder till we had to intervene.

so for the past 3+ years we have been battling BNSF for them to stop
parking their trains out here in Morristown Arizona and letting them idle for hours on end. 6-14 hrs typical, 2+ hrs if we are lucky!

so i started this blog back in october of 2016 after i threatened to “BLOW” up the train if they didn’t stop the NOISE POLLUTION.
Yes, i had BNSF Special Agent Schultz(the Bull) show up and ask me to delete the video and to stop threatening the train. which i complied.

so generally, the train noise rolls in @ 4-5AM every week day and they also roll in @ 6:20PM most every afternoon and leave the train abandoned and running while they take off to heavens where!

so this is my life story of being tortured by BNSF and its local RCPE , ARZC and MKULTRA trains too.

this log used to go all the way back to Oct 2016, but i purged it on new years as a sign of good will gesture.

then in:
