I think it has to do with many having windows open during the night to cool down the house. The still air and those open windows can make a train whistle pretty loud at 3:00 am!
I am going to ask representatives of the CNR to join us as a deligation at one of our council meetings so that we may ask them what is involved in having the trains stop their whistles.
I'll let you know when we've arranged that meeting. You're more than welcome to attend that meeting to get the info first hand.
