Locomotive Whistle Refuses To Be Still

[Adapted from the Springfield Republican, 10 February 1922.]

North Adams, February 9.—the incessant shrieking of a locomotive whistle for nearly an hour beginning at about10 this morning caused much interest and curiosity about the city. The blast was caused by the catching of a steam whistle on a Boston & Maine locomotive. The trouble began when the train was in Johnsonville, N.Y., according to the trainman and they were unable to stop it. Then the locomotive reached this city, it was taken off and another substituted. The one that made the noise remained here until it was repaired, and, silence obtained about the city once more.
