LOL you probably bought my house that I pulled out on. My house was in the Mayfield section in the back. When I was standing on my property, that train was crystal clear and very loud.

I personally didn't want to hear/deal the train nor deal with the shady neighborhood less than two miles away.

Yes a train track is there! Thats not the issue; the issue is does it sound like it's running through ur back yard at ur bedroom window or does it sound like a distant noise that u commonly hear in many areas of any city. But again you dont live there! I do! I think a person building or even thinking about building a home in Woodbury (or any neighborhood) would appreciate the input of someone who ACTUALLY LIVES in the neighborhood more than from someone who heard a train once while standing outside. Of course the train is going to be louder if you're standing outside. Duh? Im giving insight to daily life in Woodbury. The fact of the matter is...if you're inside ur home (which I think most people would be more concerned about) you can barely hear the train.

Can anybody else that ACTUALLY LIVES in Woodbury attest to this?

We lived in a Centex home at one point and while I love their floorplans and good use of space, I saw many problems that weren't done right the first time. BUT it doesn't mean that they didn't come and fix the problem. They did come and fix the floors that were warped probably b/c they were put in in winter and were exposed to the wet air/temps at that time.

It's not anger, it's a strong opinion that you're reading. Dont misinterpret my posts.

But you REALLY should stop giving people false impressions about a neighborhood you dont even live in. What you're saying about the train simply isnt true. And I think you can appreciate that coming from a person who resides at the place that your talking about. Im sure you would be quick to correct someone posting false info about your neighborhood too. So Im sure you understand. ;-)

And believe me...I couldnt be more excited about it being Friday...no chill pill needed here!

Telling someone that a train runs in front of the community is a false impression?? I think you need to re read your last post. It's a just plain stated fact.

Also I guess the fact that two robberies that ended in MURDER less than two miles from the community is also a false impression as well??? You should have seen the deer in the headlights look on the office people when I told them why I was cancelling my contract and demanded my money back.

FYI, just because you "can't" hear the train in your house, doesn't mean that someone else with more sensitive hearing/sleeping patterns won't. I was standing in the back of the neighborhood on MY future property on my cellphone when the train blasted its horn. The person on the other end of the phone said "OMG WTF is that????" knowing my past experiences with trains. I even called all over the state of NC to find out who owns those lines and what times they run. I even knocked on the neighbors doors right outside the community and spoke with both of them. Do you really think a woodframed house is really going to make that big of a noise cushion against that? I don't think so and can speak from past expierences, it doesn't.

I'm glad you enjoy Woodbury. I'm really glad I didn't purchase there for my sanity and my future resale value.

Enjoy your weekend.
