Sony Time-Lapse App on FL-674

Camera used for these photos was the Sony A7 Full Frame – get price at amazon.com

This video was created with the Sony Time Lapse App on a Sony A7 camera. The individual clips were unedited and spliced together in Windows Movie Maker which is free software. The music was provided by YouTube’s Audio Library which is free as well.

I have been learning there are so many ways to create a time-lapse video. Some phones and cameras like the Cannon SX710 creates these right in the camera.

Here is what I used to create this one

Loud train horns in Tampa getting silenced

Train horn complaints by residence in downtown Tampa have been heard while the City goes into planning phase to quite them down

TAMPA / YBOR CITY, FL – It is Federally mandated for train conductors (24 hours a day) to sound their horns 15-20 seconds before reaching a railroad crossing to warn drivers and pedestrians a train is approaching.

Mayor Buckhorn’s push for new residential communities for the downtown area has been a great success.  A good example would be the 23-story Skyhouse in Channelside that had tenants signing on  months before it was move-in ready. The 7-story Fitzgerald apartments was the latest open. And in the works is the The Channel Club apartment complex with an adjacent Publix.

However, more people equates to more complaints. And at the top of the list is the train horns sounding off during the night.

The Remedy? Quiet Zones.

QUIET ZONES
A Quiet Zone is a Federal Railroad Administration exemption to the rule requiring train conductors and engineers to sound their horns when approaching railroad crossings.

However, train crews can still sound the horn if warranted for other safety reasons. So far there are only around five crossing in the downtown area slated to change over to Quiet Zones.

Quiet Zones must have upgraded warning devices and new gates that cost around $200,000 for each crossing according to CCX.

HOT TO GET QUIET ZONES

Learn how to get your local public agency to request a Quiet Zone for your area: fra.dot.gov/eLib/details/L03055

Communities wishing to establish a quiet zone should contact their
local FRA Crossing Manager at: fra.dot.gov/Page/P0244
