    Default Early Era Grade Crossing Whistle etc..

    Just a couple of fun videos I would like to share. The first one demonstrates the proper early era TOC whistle sequence for grade crossings including the bell ringing. The second video is the same grade crossing but I love how the old locomotive sways and bobs along the Zalma Branch's ancient rusty rails. This crossing is at Greenbrier, MO. Thanks to my wife for running the camera for me. She's a real trooper

    Sorry, Bill. It's a direct link to photobucket.
    Thanks, Oldguy. I just recently found out on this very forum that the early whistle sequence differs from the modern version.

    Whistle crossing on the Zalma Branch, Missouri, 1915, and the Track Level View

    Where is the damsel in distress, all tied up on the tracks, with our villain behind the tree watching???

    That was my wife being the damsel with the camera and she just barely jumped up out of the way.
