PRR T1 Steam Whistle to be Used on WMSR

June 13, 2022

A former Pennsylvania Railroad steam locomotive whistle will be used on Western Maryland Scenic Railroad trains pulled on June 18 and 19 by former Chesapeake & Ohio 2-6-6-2 No. 1309.

The whistle was once used on a PRR T1 steam locomotive and is being loaned to the WMSR by the Pennsylvania Railroad T1 Trust, which is seeking to create a T1 locomotive, to be numbered No. 5550.

In an email announcement, the Trust group said some of its members will be present to discuss the project and answer questions about it.

The T1 whistle will be used by the WMSR tourist trains leaving from Cumberland, Maryland.

The 1309 was recently restored to operating condition by the WMSR and it seeing its first season of operation this year.
