comment How great is the effect of trees on noise pollution?
I think it may be referring to the "decorated" versions of the 2, 4 and 6-lane roads - specifically the versions with trees down the side - as the descriptions of those roads indicate that they reduce noise. That said, I've no idea how effective they are either.

comment Rail traffic is backed up trying to leave my city. Is there anything I can do?
I do kinda say that when I talk about brining a link for the external line into a station next to a transport hub somewhere.

comment How to fix the “Not enough goods to sell” problem
This isn't a problem that I've seen yet, but maybe you've been concentrating on offices a lot and have too little commercial zone, meaning there's simply too much demand for what few shops you have?

comment Cities: Skyline services going to the wrong districts
@Reaces 2 stations is - or should be anyway - overkill for that area, and frankly I'm not sure what else could be causing either the high fire hazard or distant engine travel. Might be worth setting the smoke detector policy in that district, if you haven't already. Otherwise I'm out of useful suggestions...
