Large Steam Whistle

Post by cyberbadger » Fri Jun 04, 2021 9:19 pm

I am familiar with single tone and step chime whistles.

Does anyone understand how the whistle in this video is constructed?

Some seriously large steamhose and a small dry firebox vft.

https://patents.google.com/patent/US48921 shows a two bell version. A four bell whistle along the same idea is an obvious extrapolation.
