Despite the advent of modern radio communication, most of these whistle signals are still used today:

- One short: Stop or stopping; apply the brakes
- One long: Approaching railroad station or junction (if moving), or apply air brakes and equalize pressure (if standing)
- Two short: A general answer signal or acknowledgement; identical to the "roger" or "10-4" radio terms
- One short, one long: Inspect the train
- One long, one short: Visibility obscured
- Two long: Train is about to proceed forward; release the brakes
- One long, two short: Additional section follows signaling train
- Two long, one short or two short, one long: Train is approaching a meeting or waiting point
- Two long, one short, one long: Train is approaching a grade level crossing (i.e. a road crossing). This is a widely used safety signal used to warn motorists and is blown at every grade level crossing, except where local noise ordinances prohibit it. Known in railroad rulebooks as rule '14L'
- Three short: Train is about to proceed in reverse (if standing), or train is about to stop at the next station (if moving)
- Three long: Train cars have come unhooked; train has come apart
- One long, three short: Flagman, go protect the rear of the train
- One short, three long: Flagman, go protect the front of the train
- Four short: Request for signals
- Four long: Flagman, return to the train from the west or north
- Five long: Flagman, return to the train from the east or south
- Four short, one long: Fire alarm; fire on the train
- Multiple short: Danger, get off the tracks! Used to warn pedestrians or livestock who are on the tracks in front of the approaching train.
