Includes score and parts
Train Whistle/Acme Siren (optional)
There are some empty bars at the beginning! Use them to make some train noises, steadily building from the beginning to letter A where the music starts. Ideas include “huffing” into the flute with the mouth hole covered, rattling keys, or even interesting percussion! Just make sure that enough players are ready to play at A. Letter A to B should sound as train-like as possible.. one way to achieve this is to bend the long notes in the lower parts, starting a bit under the note, and rising up to pitch. At letter A Flute 1's can play alternate bars/half bars for simplicity, unless you have only one (nimble-fingered) player! The (optional) Train Whistle/Siren part can either be played by a separate player, or by one of the flautists if you scribble it into their part and they can cope with ducking in and out.
