I looked on Google Maps and saw train tracks near Green street. Is it noisy? No. The train tracks at the base of Green Street are from redwood logging operations in the 1800's. The tracks are used today by Roaring Camp Railroad, a tourist train that takes people from the redwoods to the beach four times a day in the summer. There are no trains running after 5pm.
