So i was looking through a new 2019 Lionel Catalog. I see plenty Id love to get like the Santa Fe Northern 3571. My only question is is Lionel still doing that **** "Standard" Whistle or have they gone back and made the Whistles match the locomotive? Or do we not really know at this point?
I recorded that locomotive personally in San Bernadino on Lionel's behalf many years ago. As I am no longer working for Lionel, I can't say what the upcoming release includes. But to the best of my recollection, past Lionel 3751 models ALWAYS used the sound of the ACTUAL 3751 whistle.
I know the older Legacy Santa Fe Northern from the 2012 catalog had what I suspect though is the correct whistle. It had bad smoke fan motors, but they were easy to fix.
Rudy, you did a great job on the sound. I have the original 3751 and it remains one of my favorites.
I was stationed at Norton AFB at the time the loco first fired up and moved down the tracks in San Bernardino. Pretty neat. You got all the sounds perfect.
