New Steamboat whistle stirs memories

About 20 on hand for inaugural blasts in revival of city tradition

Steamboat Springs’ new noon whistle blasted off with a softer sound than its downtown predecessor. About 20 people gathered Wednesday for a brief ceremony commemorating its inaugural blasts. The new whistle is reminiscent of old trains and steamboats and will sound every day at noon.
