They don't go by much in the day. But between 12AM and 6AM when I'm trying to sleep they're by every few hours. Usually when I'm trying to sleep. I live about a mile from the train tracks and they honk those airhorns repeatedly.
Some honk their airhorns softer or do shorter toots overnight. The rest just do a full blown honk usually waking me up or making me have to stop what I'm doing.

The tracks go right through residential neighboorhoods. I can only imagine what it must be like for the houses right next to the tracks.
Once at 3AM I was walking about 2 miles from the train tracks and you could hear the ding noises and the engine of the train that far down the road. Sound must travel really far when its still and quiet.
Here's a recording of how it sounds

You read it! You can't unread it!
It's not the closest I've ever lived to tracks, though. My first home in Ohio was across from a set of tracks running parallel to the street. I don't remember much about it, since I was a toddler at the time, but from my mother's stories, it was definitely an experience.
