A picture of Virginia & Truckee Railroad steam locomotive #29. (This locomotive had worn a Great Northern 5 chime during her career.)

A picture of Union Pacific steam locomotive #4466. (This one had worn the Star Brass 5 chime.)

This was originally a Disney sound effect that is not on Cartoon Trax Volume 1. The whistle that is heard is most likely a Great Northern 5 chime steam whistle. However, the whistle was sourced from the Star Brass 5 chime steam whistle that Union Pacific steam locomotive #4466 had worn for usage in the 80’s British TV show, Tugs.
