Out of the past Railroad engineers its said own their own whistles with distinctive voices that identify them to other knowing railroaders who happen to hear. That May or May not be but there a no doubt that each Engineer has own Way of spacing the whistle blasts so that they Are As unmistakable As human voice and accent. If there is anything to All this tile Engineer who used to kick tile Little daily train along the old . Track through Here has brought whistle along and gone to w Ork for the Santa be so that he still runs through Arcadia. Heard it the other night and puzzled for an hour trying to figure out Why it was so hauntingly familiar. Then i remembered the tone and the punctuation of the blasts. A Coyote up on the Hillside let out a startled yelp As if he had heard a voice out of the past too. The night does some meteorological stunts with those train whistles. What would be a commonplace whistle for a crossing in the daytime becomes at night a crazy Hoot a Long moan or a wild fleeing shriek. Half the fun of having a bad conscience or a dyspepsia is lying awake to hear what the night does to commonplace sounds.

A Oley were Good enough to go through the paces As the photographer asked. When it was finished one of them said to another a Dopey if you ask me a they could be right at that when they grow up they Arentt Likely to let their school expansion programs lag As far behind Community needs As we have.
