    Needing a little help from my Milwaukee road friends.

    I'm finally getting to detailing my N-scale Kato Milwaukee Rd SD40-2 Bicentennial unit #156. Trouble is, there's something sitting on top of the cab by the air horns that I have no clue what it is....I'm trying to find a close up but so far no dice.....Could I get a little help please, this should be on the loco for this unit to be represented correctly.....THANKS!!!!!(y)

    I believe that is one of MILW’s electric bells. A good Google search should yield some images.

    They had a couple different versions. One looks like a coffee can in a stick, the other looks like a square megaphone speaker.

    156 was originally equipped with the Prime PM-516 electronic bell. Have never seen any offered commercially in N scale. Overland Models (brass) did offer the later Prime PM-533 squared end version, in HO, as a separate detail part.

    Doink, doink, doink. I will never forget that sound!
