Default Whistle Blow in Youngstown (OH)

Hello everybody, I would like to announce the Mahoning Valley RR Heritage Assoc. annual whistle blow. This will be held at the B&O Station Catering Hall, 530 Mahoning Ave., in Youngstown the first Saturday after Thanksgiving which is November 30. This is on a paved parking lot with plenty of steam provided by the Youngstown Thermal & Eagle Mechanical companies. Hours are 10am - 3pm. The fees are $20 per person for hookups & whistle blow donations are $1 for those without a whistle. For further info visit www.mvrha.org

No History at all. I got it from a Christmas Tree Farmer nearby .... he probably picked it up at an auction or estate sale years ago. He's been an auction nut forever ... doesn't even remember where or when he got it. It was laying in a shed & buried under old boards & crap when I found it & proceeded to wheel & deal him for it. I'm not even sure it's a Crosby ... but that the closest thing I can match it to in Edward Fagen book "The Engine's Moan". It's "Valveless" ... so I fitted a 1-1/2" Lunkenheimer valve to it ... had to make the lever.

The only video I have seen of the Whistle Blow was on Facebooks under the Midwest Railway Preservation Society page. It shows them blowing their whistle off of a light Mikado 4070 that used to run between Cleveland and Akron.

Bump;
Any plans for a Whistle Blow in the area this fall ?

I've been "tooting" mine with a Leaf Blower ... but I really really want to let it have some steam ! I've never got to hear it under steam.

The whistle blow in Youngstown is usually held in November. September 19, 20 & 21, in Wellington, Ohio (25 miles west of Cleveland) at the Lagrange Engine Show, they will have their whistle manifold in operation. That is the only other whistle blow that I know of. http://www.lagrangeengineclub.com/Fl...w%20Flyer.html

Thanks Farq .. but that's just a little too far for me. Maybe next year someone will have one closer. I really missed the boat last year with the one just across the river from me in Bellaire Ohio !
