"Caltrain's Workin' on the Railroad..."

But hopefully, it won't be all the live long night. You may have heard work being done by Caltrain in the wee hours of Monday night/Tuesday morning. This came from Caltrain using a track stabilizer, which itself combines heavy vibration and weight to compress and level the track (for use when one rail becomes higher than the other). The machine looks like this:

Upon inspecting their previous work, Caltrain officials found an issue at one of the crossovers and will be back in Brisbane tonight to correct it. Therefore, even though Caltrain crews will be working as quickly and quietly as possible tonight to get the job done, you may hear some noise as a result. Click here to watch a video clip of the type of maintenance work that will be done, so you know what to expect.

Caltrain apologizes for this inconvenience...and we hope you're still able to still get some good Z's in tonight!
