We've all heard this recording at some point. The infamous "2T22" in Alberta.

Upon closer inspection this is actually a CLM. You can see the CLM cage on top of the fire dept, but the actual siren is out of view.

Can you get a shot of the full siren? It might be any sort of 10/12 port siren with no housing. And can you get a closer shot of the housing? I cannot see it.

Anyway, absolutely brilliant discovery, you don’t see a CLM everyday now do you?

Apparently it was a "mailbox" siren which blew out on one side about 20 years ago. They now have a siren which rotates. I have no other info. Awaiting someone local to get a picture

It is. I've asked the Facebook page to get a video if they can.

A second potentially active rotating CLM has been found at the CN railyard in Coalhurst outside of Lethbridge, AB.

Historical streetview shows it pointing in different directions.
