      PRR K-4

       

       

       

      Well not exactly but one of the whistle's still lives on a Case steam tractor.

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       I drove it this year but the whistle makes my butthole fall out every time I pulled the chain over the years! The echo off of South Mountain, PA is numbing! I can only envision what 4 of them would have sounded like going over the Rockville Bridge headed to the Horseshoe Curve back in the day in the hood.

      Thanks Dave.

      All this from a guy that always claims he doesn't like steam

      I don't!  

       

       

      However I enjoy it as it's history which I love BUT it's not my prime choice when it comes to modeling it.

      Awesome! In the first video, what was that weird siren-like sound after the whistle?

      Dave, can I get an original copy of that first video and the second? We're putting the files in our whistle modules. I'll pm my email.
