This whistle is in very good original condition with most of the original patina.  This whistle with a built in valve could have been used in many applications: Steam Locomotives, Factories, and Steam Ships.

The bell has some pitting from use, and a repair that was most likely completed by Ashton at the time of casting.

The following things were done by Scholl Engine Shop:

-Serviced the Valve
-Made Steel Lever
-Repaired Short Cracks in Lower Partitions
