LUBBOCK COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

Philip Contreras and his one-year-old son Lucas watch trains pass by their East Lubbock home everyday. 

Multiple tracks, feet away from their home, and from an elementary school.

"All the time they come by and I have no idea what is in them," Contreras said.

So, how can you find out what is coming through your neighborhood?

We are going to have the answer on KCBD NewsChannel 11 at 10 p.m.
