A long while back, I took the “Magic Behind Our Steam Trains” tour at the Magic Kingdom. The guide told us what the various steam locomotive whistle signals meant, and I jotted them down. I finally decided to post them here so they no longer take up space on my notepad.
- Four notes, coming into station: “Here Comes The Train”
- At the station, two notes and a bell: “I’m Here”
- Two notes when ready to leave: “Let’s Go”
- Three notes, when the engineer needs to back up: “Let’s Go Back”
