The train speed has gotten significantly faster and faster to the point where the homes are literally shaking. Who is responsible for monitoring the speed of the trains when passing through neighborhoods? Is there a speed limit that needs to be enforced? I am really nervous about the potential damage the extreme movement from the ground shaking can cause to the house foundation.

Officials from the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railroad are responsible for monitoring train speeds. BNSF officials advised the max speed in residential neighborhoods for freight trains is between 40 and 49 MPH. If you believe that the trains are traveling at an unsafe speed, complaints concerning trains speeds or other railroad related complaints can be reported directly to BNSF by calling 1-800-832-5452.
