Hello all. I recently acquired a W.S. Darley Model 7ATT. I made another thread about this, but I was told to make a different thread.
It is 3 phase (hence the A in the name) 240 volts Alternating Current. As far as I know the motor does not work. It was seized but I have freed it. The siren is very rusty and had a lot of dirt in it. There is a hole in the top of a shroud where the top piece was. It was rusted away. It is from the 60's/70's and served in the Fallston CD system (all sirens in the system were recently removed in December 2020.) This is the only 7.5 HP dual tone Darley Model X that I know of. I will post pics later (the pics are from before I started working on it and when it was seized.) It used to be painted red.
Some more info about the Fallston CD system.
The Fallston CD system had 6 sirens (2 of which have not been located yet). Most were removed in December 2020. The exception is the siren on Jerusalem road, which fell off its pole in May 2020. The controls remain. I own the motor starter panel to this siren. This siren is a Federal Sign and Signal Model 2T-240. The siren's shroud fell off in 2006.
The other sirens.
There was a siren at the Fallston Auto wash which is now owned by Luke (East Coast Sirens). It is a 1960's Federal Sign and Signal Model 7ATT. For some reason, none of the Fallston sirens were never disconnected. Where the siren was 2 pole stumps remain. Another location was at the post office. It is also a FS&S Model 7ATT. One of the poles and the stump for the other pole remain. This one was most likely scrapped along with the other 2 sirens that were not obtained by me and Luke. The controls for these sirens were most likely scrapped as well.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Proud owner of various small warning devices, 3 horns, a JDW-145 and a W.S. Darley Model 7ATT.
