Single Chime or One Note: Whatever you call them, here they are for your pleasure.
C&O Single Chime from #1488 The 1488 was a 2-6-6-2 H-6 Class locomotive on the C&O railroad.
Logging Chime Whistle Old logging whistle on the Hillcrest Lumber Climax out in Washington State.
Home Made One Note -This is built with a brass bell and a old C&O Powell bowl – so we think. Artie built it.
Three Chimes: Always smooth
L&N whistle at Cass Scenic Railroad L&N Passenger whistle, and probably my all time favorite short bell 3 chime.
Lunkenheimer 5″ B.I.V.I didn’t know a 5″ diameter 3 chime could sound this good at the time it proved me and the engineer both wrong.
C&O from 4-4-0 Class pre.1900s/ Another One Who doesn’t love a C&O 3 chime. Shop built and apparently once used on the shops at Clifton Forge after the engine 128 was retired. Some people called it the Sunday whistle because it was used with another larger 3 chime but rarely blown.
6″ Lunkenheimer – Don’t know origin.
B&O LB 3 Chime I caught this whistle on the 734 at the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad. Owned by the engineer at that time. Its commonly known as
a “Tumor Top”. There is a raised chamber by way of a special cast top.
6″ Crosby – Cass / Another / And Another
SB B&O 3 Chime (On Air) – Side Mount -We recorded this at Hawks Nest. Wasn’t the best on air, as with any “steam” whistle, but this will do until I get another recording.
B&O 3 Chime on 190psi Steam -This is a great opportunity to hear the sound difference produced with steam and air.
