Which side of the track is right?

Re Dec. 3 article, “Laying off the horn: Schenectady seeks rail quiet zone”: I understand the desire for quiet trains. But there have been noisy trains on the tracks in the north end of the city long before any of us were around. Countless souls have lived and many still live side-by-side with those tracks, the trains,and the noise.

And now, instead of a factory building trains across Maxon Road, you have people with money who must have quiet. So when you point to those moneyed folks to justify a quiet zone, are you labeling one side of the tracks as the right side and the other as perhaps the wrong side? Shame on you.
