You can change the whistle by CV 115 and the whistle volume by CV 129.

The only recording I have heard of the J's whistle revealed a very flat and dull sound so you may have the right sound, but it's not that good is it!

I changed mine to something far nicer by playing with the settings on CV 115.

Happy Christmas!

Jim: All the BLI models have lagging but are painted graphite.

2177 was the other Y6b that wasn't shrouded. If they were shrouded the smoke box was painted black. Only the front of the smoke box was painted a silvery heat resistant graphite paint.
