What is a Quiet Zone?

A quiet zone is a section of a rail line where locomotive horns are not routinely sounded.  Jurisdiction of Quiet Zones falls under the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA).  A quiet zone removes the requirement for the routine blowing of train horns, although the conductor always has the option to blow horns at their discretion.  To learn more about FRA's rules and requirements for quiet zones, visit their website.
