There was a removed model 2 in Wadestown
Oh thanks! I've been wondering about Wadestown for a while. Looked around it on Street View a couple times but could never find a siren. Do you know which building it was on/at?

Added the Model 2 in Triadelphia. Not sure how I missed that one, hehe.
Added the Vortex R4 in downtown Pine Grove. Not entirely sure what it's used for but I'm guessing natural gas fracking emergencies.
Added the Modulator at the Mobley Gas Plant.

Thank you! Added both.
There appears to be an unused Roundback 2001 on the ground behind the building in the second link.

Sirens may not be sexy, but they sure work.
