according to the Dashwood FD, it's no longer operational
They will be fixing it and putting it back in service.
Wonder what repairs it needs. I recorded it back in 2015 and couldn't tell if it was supposed to sound as odd as it did or not.
They said one day it just quit working, probably a motor issue.

Sorry to bump an old post, but I've found two new sirens:

An active Model 2T located in Sarnia, at a chemical plant down the street from one of the Modulator 3012s at the railyards, and a Modulator 3012 located at a plant near Sombra, Ontario. I accidentally recorded the 2T while recording a Modulator that ended up failing, and found it not long after.

Awesome on my record list now! have an address on the 2T? 2T's in Ontario are extremely rare in these years there used to be some in Waterloo Region from the '60s to the '90's I believe

It's at 1182 Plank Road, N7T 7H3. It's at a Plains Midstream Canada refinery.

https://www.instantstreetview.com/@42.9 ... .48p,2.53z <- Siren can be seen in streetview if you zoom in

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRHJzUdx-3U The 2T can be heard at 1:03 in the video.

That's not a 2T. Sounds like two separate sirens going off at exactly the same time.

Then I have absolutely no clue where those are coming from. It sure sounded like one, though. What could the two other sirens be then?

They are Model 2s maybe 2Ts.

They were first noticed back in 2009

It has to be a 2T due to the sound of it unless they have more than one model 2 making it sound like it's a 2T...

It's not a 2T, sounds like two Model 2s running at the same time. 2Ts don't sound at a 5/6 ratio.
