I think it is OK to emphasize that a W is literally not intrinsic to the train.

Hard to believe the trains are more bothersome than the 737's and A320's (let alone the C-130's from the Air National Guard base) coming over ~1,000' off the deck.

My place is in the flight path of at least one, if not all of the New York City airports, the planes aren't even that low and it's still annoying AF.
