Ben,

The majority of those East coast sidewheelers probably had single barrel whistles, So the sound of the Belle of Louisville or Natchez would not be appropriate. Probably the sound of any old factory whistle with a single barrel would do nicely, as long s it wasn't too high piched. I looked ae several phos of of the River Queen but couldn't tell where the whistle was.

Also, those East Coast boats all had condensers, so there wouldn't have been any "choo, choo"exhaust sound at all.
