Wanted: 4-8-8-4 Big Boy Whistle
« on: July 29, 2016, 03:47:00 PM »
I've downloaded every steam whistle sound file from the RailPro site (only five) and listened to them all through the LM-3S.  None seem to be suitable for a Big Boy, to the best I can determine.

Does anyone have a file for a Big Boy whistle they'd care to share?  Would it be possible to have someone create such a file?  I don't know exactly what it takes to make sound files but I do know that I have neither the equipment nor the expertise, nor do I have access to any recordings of any kind.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Going forward, I'm using the RailPro "Steam Whistle" as it seems to be the closest match.  I tried the "800 Class" thinking it might be for the FEF's but it just doesn't sound right (even for an FEF).  Perhaps it's for a different 800 class?
