Problem with 3985 whistle

Postby Alex5236 » Mon Aug 05, 2019 8:24 pm

Hasn’t anybody noticed that the highest note on the 3985 has stopped working? It started to fade in 1992 and then died completely in 1993. Does anybody think UP will rectify this problem during 3985’s overhaul? For a comparison here’s a clip of it from 1983 and later in 2008 which is what it currently sounds like.
