1879 - The End of the Whistle

News
Locomotive whistling is to be superseded at Poughkeepsie, N.Y., by a bell worked by electricity which will be set up in the depot. When the train arrives within a mile of the station, the bell will ring until it gets to the depot. The danger signal is thus given, and the waste of steam is avoided, to say nothing of the racket.
