Take your whistle to the annual whistle blow at Boot Hill near Jones, MI. For a donation, they will hook your whistle up to a steam boiler and let you blow it for awhile. https://sjvoea.org/

I did that a couple of years ago at the annual Yankee Steam-Up in Rhode Island. I loved hearing the whistle I had. There were quite a few tooting away that day.
