I have one and know the whereabouts of five of them. There are actually
more than fourteen
as the K2 & K2a's and some of the E2a's had the same whistle. They were a
standard three chime
manufactured by Hancock Valve Division of Manning, Maxwell & Moore, in
Bridgeport, CN.
They are very recognizable as N&W whistles because the N&W modified the
Fulcrum and valve
on them from their original configuration. My guess is most of them survive

All this talk about J class whistles has got me a wondering. Does anyone
know how many of the 14 J class whistles are still in existence today? Gary
