Sound of CPRR steam whistles

From: "Malcolm Easton"

Is there any information about the type of steam whistle used on CPRR trains around 1885? I am trying to find a description of the sound, e.g., a particular note or chord. I see in Wikipedia a detailed discussion of this with references to other railroad lines but none to CPRR. ...

Perhaps the CPRR locomotive photographs or the locomotive plans in the Appleman report might give sufficient details of the steam whistles to provide some clues.
