NEW SONG OF THE RAILS . . . Anna Steinhof (above) uses a
tuning fork to test the pitch of one of the North Western railway’s
new five-chime musical air horns. With 90 new diesel locomotives
being delivered to the North Western this year, the “song of the
rails” is acquiring a new note in the interest of harmony as well
as safety and the diesel locomotive seems to have acquired a
“voice” as distinctive to its day as the “whistle in the night” was
yesterday. The air chime sounds an A-major seventh chord (C
sharp, E, G, A, and C-sharp). Diesels have come into prominent
use on both passenger and freight trains on the C&NW mainline
through O’Neill during the past two years.
