think were required by the government on all diesel locomotives for many years. If you ever ran CN or CP engines they
I think the original horns lasted well into the Penn Central period when some of them were changed out for some reason.
When the Central Vermont got the new GP-9's in 1957 to replace the last of the steam they also had the same horns on
them and maybe the NHRR decided to go with the same horns when these engines came on the line.
