Pretty much every type, Lee.

Some had cast chime whistles, others had shrill "peanut" style single chime whistles. Some even used homemade whistles made from various lengths of tubes.

#74's whistle, which was probably sent along with the engine to Morse Brothers, is a small single chime whistle stamped "67". In active service on the C&S it had a larger single chime whistle.

#75 carried a small cast Nathan five chime whistle, #76 had a larger cast Nathan.
