    It's a French law.  You may not understand it, but the train crews do.

    WHY

    It is a requirement of French laws.

    AL:L TRAINS do not follow this rule in particular the TGV.

    In France, it's a celebration that they aren't on the same track.

    There is a French law requiring that a train blow it's whistle when passing an oncoming train. I'm guessing this is to alert pedestrians and motorists who waited for one train to pass that another one is now coming from the opposite direction.
