Whistle Exchange
14-June-1964

Whistle Exchange

This is looking at the E. J. Lavino plant in Sheridan, PA, west of Reading. They had a 0-6-0 tank type steam switcher
still in service in 1964. As the Iron Horse Ramble passed, the engineers would engage in a "whistle exchange"
where one would blow a series of signals and the other would repeat them. (The T1s had the upper hand on sound volume!)
