A CSX train horn malfunctioning near Kenyon Road had residents over much of the city covering their ears on Monday evening.

A train horn went haywire for nearly three hours, prompting the city to summon CSX repair crews to the scene. However, according to Suffolk News-Herald readers reporting on Facebook, it stopped around 8:30 p.m.

The haywire horn was on an unmanned CSX train that is tied down on the tracks near a side road of Kenyon Road, according to city spokeswoman Diana Klink. It has been malfunctioning since about 5:45 p.m., she added.
