We just moved to Davis Island and I've been awaken by a loud honking noise several nights. this morning it started around 5ish and several long repeated blows lasting quite awhile. I wonder if we could be hearing the train... I don't think there are any tracks near us. We aren't in the part facing the port. But could we still be hearing boats on the other side of the island?

Could be boats, could be the train. You live next to the PORT, you should be expecting noise and smells

The train does run through downtown, so it could be the train or the ships, I sometimes hear either (or both). I imagine on Davis Island, you are closer than I am. The train runs through downtown southbound and then runs along roughly the same route as the Selmon Expressway.

ships navigating down the seddon channel, especially when it's a bit foggy. woke me up the other day too, but don't really mind it.
