I have the original, hard cover company catalogs. They are spare doubles of mine. They are all illustrated with many items including steam whistles of course. I'm willing to trade them for other whistle catalogs which I don't have in my catalog collection. Harry D. Barry.

  1. The Ashton Valve Co. Catalog # 28, probably ca. 1928
  2. 1921Crane Co. catalog # 139
  3. 1920 Lunkenheimer Co. I consider this to be Lunk's best for whistle offerings
  4. 1912 The Lunkenheimer Co.
  5. 1908 The Lunkenheimer Co.
  6. 1914 Crane Co. catalog #40
  7. 1976 The Lunkenheimer Co.
  8. 1971 The Lunkenheimer Co.
  9. 1939 The Lunkenheimer Co.
