Sugar Land Toots its Own Horn!

   How Sugar Land Got Its Name     


     Sugar Land, Texas (suburb of Houston) has put up with the sound of train horns blowing all hours of the day and night!  Well, after many years technology has finally caught up with the train.  In the city of Sugar Land, all of the railroad crossings now have the new wayside horns.  The train is not allowed to blow their horn since the new horns emit a narrow, quieter cone of sound directed at the intersection.  This will eliminate the need for the train to warn everyone within a five mile radius that is there.  Since there are 10 intersections that these new horns were installed, the residences that live near the tracks are becoming much happier.
