My understanding of train whistles is that they require steam to sound authentic.
Until you get proper training Don't do it

About what I thought!
Thanks for the advise.
I was fairly sure I was not going to weld it before i asked, you guys sorta of affirmed my thoughts.
I appreciate having the ability to ask a question like this and receive direct answers. Local practical experience is getting more hard to find all the time.

listen to the other guys
If it's not already dangerous enough for a novice to deal with an explosion risk from the propane, it doubles the jeopardy now that it is a pressure vessel. As the others suggested, DON'T DO IT. Now that's my personal opinion, but I'm sure there would be some pretty colors when it goes off. DaveIf necessity is the Mother of Invention, I must be the Father of Desperation!

I like the idea of using an air compressor tank and the original fittings that somone suggested earlier. It just might be cheaper than having the propane tank modified.

while I haven't done it on that large of a vessel, I have done projects with 20 lb. propane cylinders before. I take all of the fittings out, fill with water, drain, fill with water again and begin working with it full of water. Now, when you throw the pressure vessel thing into the mix, a simple rule applies, if you doubt your abilities in any way, DO NOT ATTEMPT IT.
