Many, many moons ago when Lionel released the B&A Berkshires using the Kline tooling. Some were upset with the the fact the advertised whistle steam was not present on the delivered model. Then someone noticed there's no whistle on the model at all. I went back to my Kline versions and no whistle also. Some tried to figure out where the whistle was placed on the real thing but I don't think it was ever solved. So this always bugged me that my engines were missing a whistle but I always forgot to research it. Well after looking at some videos, and through 26 pages of berkshire pics on the New York Central System historical Society, I finally got smart and emailed the society to see if anyone there knew or could find out.
Well Success. Thanks to Rich Stoving, he found a pic that somewhat shows the location. So those who want to purchase a brass whistle from Precision Scale, you have the location to install it.
Side note, could it be possible Lionel didn't ad the whistle steam because they couldn't find the location of the whistle?
Anyway the circled area shows the location of the missing whistle.
