I am seriously looking at buying a home in San Tan area. Will the train keep me up all night?
Thank You for your responses.

Smile train noise

I have been in San Tan Valley for 6 years and no the train will not keep you up at night, very seldom do I hear it. Come on down and welcome to the neighborhood.

I have been in San Tan Valley for almost a year now. While I can hear the train whistles blow, it by no means keep me or my family up at night. Then again, I do not live next to the tracks. I think the closer you are to the track the more noise you might here. How close are the train tracks to the home you are interested in?

Back in the 70's I lived about 1/2 mile from it and I still never noticed it.

We hear the train faintly in Laredo Ranch if we are outside and the wind is just right.

I live in gateway village and it wakes us up several times a night. It is awful. We will be moving asap. Between the train noise, airplanes and dogs barking this is basically the equivalent to living in a city. No thank you.

Btw I am writing this at 2am because the train woke me up.

This illustrates why it is always a good idea to check a place out before you buy or rent there. If one were to spend a few hours in the neighborhood, than one could have heard whatever noises are there, and if annoyed by those noises, chosen a different area.

Reminds me of the movie "The Blues Brothers"

"How often does the train go by?" (train goes by continuously)

"So often, you won't even notice it."
