Alarmed by a faulty railroad crossing signal in your neighborhood?
Aggravated by loud, late-night honking as a freight train trundles through your community?
Don’t bother calling the Texas Railroad Commission for help.
Once upon a time — at its founding more than a century ago — the state agency was charged with overseeing rail matters. But for decades the Railroad Commission’s regulation of trains has ebbed; the agency fully transferred oversight of railroads to the Texas Department of Transportation in 2005.
