Alright, what in the HECK is this thing?! I posted it on the (now archived) Mystery sirens thread a long while ago. No one really said anything useful. Someone said it was a Super Si-rex, but we all know that's not true.
No, this isn't some shop-built siren built by the FD, because there's another one of these in Newell along with a Model 7 shroud, a Model PL, and a Model 2.

As much as I hate to be that guy, I don't believe anyone will find a concrete answer as to what this thing is unless someone checks out the downed one. However, with imagery being a decade old just about it could very well be long gone.

Well, I'm just bouncing some ideas here... but do you remember the siren in Stroudsburg, the dual headed which (I think) was confirmed to be a CLM of some sort. Maybe this siren could have been part of the same project?

Not a chance... that thing looks more like a Secomak GP3. CLMs are way bigger.
Yeah, I think Stroudsburg's is a Type 5261.

I didn't say they were the same size, it's obviously smaller.. what i was suggesting is that they were possibly made by the same company

Might it be a Little Giant, or some other variety of Sterling>

No. That's too small to even be a little giant. It also appears to be 5/6, and the Little Giant was 12 port.
