Abstract: Sleep is a vital component of good health, and sleep loss is associated with impaired cognition, decreased psychomotor performance, cardiovascular disease, adverse effects on endocrine and metabolic function, negative mood, impaired memory, and more. A growing burden of freight transporta-tion on global railway networks will likely lead to an increase in nocturnal vibration and noise at nearby dwellings. However, there is currently limited knowledge on how railway freight vibration and noise may... more
