Default Steam in Seattle?

Hey, I'm aware that SP 4449 and UP 844 are coming up to Seattle around the 18th of this month, but I heard a very strange sound tonight. I was walking across the University of Washington campus and heard a train whistle. Since I'm so close to Interbay train yard this is a common event. Except this time it wasn't your typical Leslie or AirChime whistle, this was a steam whistle. It really sounded like a train whistle (after spending a day watching 4449 in Portland, I've gotten used to the sound), although there are boats nearby and I suppose it could have come from some sort of steam boat , but it sure as hell sounded like it was coming from the yard.
Does anyone "in the know" have any news about this or am I just going senile?
