I am planning to buy a house at Windsor but there is a railroad track right behind the house. Can you please how often trains go by a day?
Thanks

I drive through there and south through that are quite a bit and I have yet to encounter a train during the day or at dark while driving. I have heard trains occasionally, but have never seen one in that general area.

I wonder if there is anybody who lives next to the railroad to hear their experience.
Thanks

It doesn't seem to be a heavy rail corridor. From my experience (on the line thru Middleton) there were between 3 and 4 trains in a 24 hour period. It wasn't overly noticeable at all...but there was a swale so that reduced noise. I would venture to say the line in Windsor would have a similar load and if homes are adjacent (since the subdivisions are relatively new) it might not be a big issue if you have tolerance for occassional, moderate noise. I would ask the neighbors for sure.

we lived in Windsor thoughout the 90's and the train used to roll thru late in the evening, we would hear the horn as it passed by the crossings. But that was years ago.
Our daughter just bought a home in Arlington right by the track, and if it's the same as the one passing thru Deforest/Windsor (i'd assume it is but am not sure) then the train goes by +/- 10 am and 5 pm, and the noise is much better then it was years ago. In fact it didnt bother us at all when were were up there recently visiting.

Best advice, ask your soon-to-be new neighbors to get their opinions.

Default Trains in Windsor Wisconsin

I just wanted to add to this thread to warn anyone else about the Trains in Windsor Wisconsin. I was awaken twice by trains rolling through late late at night. The first train rolled through at 2:30am! with horn blowing.... then another rolled through at 3:00am with horns blowing. The was a Friday night/Saturday morning. Not happy about it.

I would not have moved here if I had noticed the train tracks so close. Thank God I am only renting.

I'd suggest foam ear plugs if it continues. We were up last weekend in Arlington, and though the train runs behind our daughter's home and add in crowd and tractor pull from town festival that night (behind their home as well) I slept fine. Not saying plugs solve all issues but they can help.

Default Trains???

drove by a house in Windsor today. Looks lovely on Brookview Ct. Satellite view looks like train tracks run behind it. Anyone familiar w this area? Active tracks? That would be a real downer for us. Thanks for any info.
