How Sound Transit Will Quiet Light Rail

From the Montlaker Blog:
http://montlaker.com/2012/08/27/how-sound-transit-plans-to-quiet-light-rail-noise-in-montlake-and-capitol-hill/

By using “high-compliance rail fasteners” and other methods, Sound Transit hopes to quiet future Link Light Rail trains in the tunnel under Capitol Hill. Noise during construction was due to the use of temporary track not securely fastened to the tunnel.

Given how many trains are expected to use the tunnel, I hope these methods work.
