Greg Neft, KSL Newsradio A neighborhood nuisance for some Salt Lake City residents is going away, and some say not a moment too soon.

The city says trains will no longer run along the 900 South corridor. "Yeah, it makes things better for my life and for most of the people in our neighborhood," Francis Whitehead said.

Whitehead lives a block away. "They move my pictures on my wall, they make my water heater rattle at night, and they're supposed to have a 'no honk' zone and they honk all the time," he said.

The city says it hopes to use the rail bed as a park. Whitehead says he's got a better idea. "They're looking for a corridor to go out to the airport, they could use them tracks that are already there," he said.

The agreement not to run trains came after years of what the city calls "complex negotiations."
