Don't remember the year, but it was a former Canadian unit painted in WP with an accurate Western Pacific small orfis Nathan
M5 Horn.

Second video reminds me of just east of Dixon. Either Tremont, Robbin, or Pedrick Roads. Nice footage!

Well, forget the video... the "sound of music" in the hills is gorgeous!

Thanks Evan for clarifying the date to be 2004:

Second location was Pedrick Road.

At one time WP had horns that sounded like the one on 806 on most all of their
2nd generation locomotives.

When UP took over, the M5s were systematically removed in favor of Leslie S3 horns.
I heard a rumor that the old M5s were dumped into scrap boxes, and for a very short
time they could be purchased directly from UP for $50 a piece!

Regards, Jim Evans

Thanks Jim.  Good to see specials out and running.  Maybe a thing of the past, but lets home not.
