Workers in the area said they are used to the noise trains in the downtown area make and they aren't sure how it will impact business in the area. 

Madi Miller, a barista for Tailored Coffee Roasters said, "We usually have a bunch of music playing so it's not really a nuisance and since I've been here for a while, you kind of get used to it. You don't really notice it."

The manager at Run Hub NW agreed.

"The fact that I can't even remember how many times it comes by, you do get used to it and certain times it seems louder," said Lauren Moe.
