We back onto the railway line (copleston) where it is in a cutting, and relatively straight so no flange squeal. The gardens on our side of Copleston are relatively long, with trees at the bottom, whereas Ivanhoe ones are slightly shorter. There is some noise I guess, but it has never bothered us for the year we've lived here. So much so in fact that on a recent train journey we had a conversation about how annoying it would be to live right next to a railway, then remembered that we actually DO and it isn't. I find the plane noise more intrusive than the railway and you'll get that most places round here.
If you are down the bottom end of Copleston where the railway is on an embankment then it would deffo be noisier.
