That will be really awesome to have someone on TOTV that will be building close to us. For a long time (really not that long, but being anxious makes it seem like a long time)I didn't see anyone who had lots close to Barret, but most were nearer the pool. We go down July 23 to get the process started and hope to move mid October-November. We plan to list our house here mid July and are hoping for a quick sell (aren't we all?) Anyhow, welcome, welcome, welcome!!!

Not to stir up anything at all but I have a question about the train nearby Tamarind Grove.

Has anyone heard the noise form the trains? I worry about how close they are to the houses and how much noise there is.

I only ask because when I visited this last weekend, one of the current residents pointed that out to me.

Can you hear it from St. James? I have a friend who has a hold on a lot there.

The tracks are one mile from the western-most point of Tamarind Grove. So for most residents of TG, they are more than a mile away. I doubt anyone will even notice the trains.

I am in Liberty Park and can hear the trains. Not enough to bother one but can hear them.

I've heard them even as far east as Canal. Obviously my house in Buttonwood is much closer than that so, yes, in Buttonwood you can hear them. But not so much that they become a problem (i.e. they don't wake you up at night or anything like that).

I agree with Russ. We live a nine iron away from each other and yes, I can hear the freight trains but it is not louder than the noise crickets make. Some people find it relaxing. I find the sound of the pickel ball courts (live two blocks away from the rec center) more annoying.

Default Trains

Hell I live in Bonita Canal & Odell and I hear the trains when I'm in the Canal. No big deal at all. They aren't really that loud. Besides it's better then cars drag racing, kids screaming, cars crashing etc.Even the cops and fire trucks are quieter.I don't think they're really that much of a nuisance. You'' be to busy enjoying yourself to worry about a train.

It is a heck of a lot quieter than the blarring music from the ice cream trucks I used to hear on Long Island.

Two pina colada's, twofers at Cody's. For an Irishman who doesn't drink it was more than a mouthful.

I was looking at a CYV in Tamarind Grove and was scared off a little when I was told about the trains. I love the area; out of the way from it all but I don't want to be woken up at night either.

I lived near the L trains in Chicago and know how loud that can be.

I played Tarpon Boil yesterday which skirts the western edge of the Villages in Buttonwood and Tamarind area. Heard two trains softly in the distance. I think the trains are louder at Churchill (Belvedere area).

Best suggestion is to come and hear for yourself. Get a good book and plant yourself out in that area and listen for the trains.

I think the reality is that how loud the trains sound will depend on the weather - which way is the wind blowing and how high is the humidity.

I formerly lived 0.3 mile from an interstate, separated by the rest of the homes in my subdivision. Of course, the motorcycles and semis were the loudest vehicles. If we were downwind from the interstate and the humidity was high, they sounded like they were in our back yard! If were we upwind, they weren't even noticeable.

The same was true for a railroad track that was 0.6 mile away.

As everyone has said... ain't no big deal.

Debbie and I closed on our CYV last week. We stayed there for 5 days before coming back to the Chicago area. If I hadn't of read this post, I wouldn't have realized there were any trains in the area.
