I love the sound of a steam whistle. Ashton Valve made a number of steam whistles for railroads, factories, boats, etc. Anyone on this site collect whistles?

When Mount Rainier Scenic Railroad ran the Porter Mikado #5 she carried an Ashton 3 chime whistle. Arguably the best sounding whistle I've ever heard.

#5 has not run in 10 to 15 years. However I think the Ashton whistle may have been put on Hammond Lumber #17. I haven't been to the Mt Rainier Railroad in over 15 years.
