Hey everyone..New member here from scenic Boonton NJ, or in siren terms, Model 5 country....(seriously they're everywhere here and are tested more than anything else :) ) This old thing pictured below is rusting away on a pole next to a large farm in my neighborhood. I've thought for some time that it's a Darley Model 2, but every time I pass by I have second thoughts, since most darleys ive seen have that "pointier" housing towards the top. Thoughts?

That would be a GCS siren... Basically a Model 2, 5 or 7 with a custom housing (just like the old Darley sirens).
