Toot Goes the Doorbell: Pneumatic Train Whistle for the Porch

 |  |  |  |  |  |  December 20, 2014


What’s something that you wanted as a kid, but never got to have? The list might be long, and the reasons are many: it didn’t exist; your parents wouldn’t allow it; you didn’t have enough cash; and so on and so forth. But here’s your chance to get one thing from that list: a working train whistle!

Pneumatic Train Whistle for the Porch

You can install the whistle on your porch or by your front door. That way, you can just give the whistle a quick toot when you’re calling your kids if they’re out in the yard or calling guests back to the house. It can also work as a very unusual doorbell and will amuse every guest you have for sure.

While there’s not a video of the exact same whistle, I assume it sounds something like this:

The pneumatic train whistle is available from Hammacher-Schlemmer for $150(USD).
