The engines in question were 2167 with our beloved 1218 behind. The
whistling appears to be done by the lead engine but I believe they both had
the same whistle. All the photos I've ever seen, at least on Blue Ridge,
had the Y up front. I only got to see them a few times up close and
personal down in the dismal swamp and there it was usually just an A. And
that, unfortunately, was a long, long time ago...

On one of O Winston Links recordings at Blue Ridge (Thunder on the Blue
Ridge) , a coal train is recorded with the lead engine's whistle breaking
into a high pitched scream -- the lead engine was usually an "A" , did any
"A"s have another whistle, or was it something the crew did to make the
scream . or was it the "Y" ?? Ron H
