Title The Train Whistle
Description THE TRAIN WHISTLE Katie D. Maylett 153 East 100 South Manti, Utah 81642 Honorable Mention Personal Recollection What was that? I heard it again! A train whistle? Yes it was a train, reminding me I was We don't hear a train whistle in the night/ or * the day. We do not have a train coming or going A fifth train, a combination passenger-freight train ran between Manti and Nephi each day. We had two served for the travelers and train crews¦ one from the south. When the trains reached Manti, the engines were changed. The larger engine then headed back north, and the smaller engine proceeded back south to Marysvale. The changing of the engines called the "Y" was used. This was north and west My it was fun to go to the station and see the tfains come i. n, puffxng and blowing to a screeching stop. Today I remember being a passenger on the northbound train going to Salt Lake City to visit my : cousins there. I loved to ride on the train and ^ to hear the vendor as he came through the train calling, "Popcorn, chewing gum, candy and jelly doughnuts." I remember Daly's red Maxwell truck with a load of ten-gallon packers of ice cream to be shipped to the neighboring towns. Ice cream was shipped avery other day. 65
