A new fangled rocket truck is now on railroad property. Naaaa, that's just a silly rumor. The county has sent over a truck to the local warehouse dock to transport the newly delivered air raid siren the federal government helped acquire. This is the cold war era and things are tense. There's a Hemi under that hood. Not the truck, the siren! Chrysler built approximately 350 Air Raid Sirens for use all around the country. When powered up using the new Hemi's the siren could be heard up to 25 miles away. Usually installed atop city buildings or on their own dedicated towers. Luckily they were never put to use alerting of incoming soviet war heads. They were tested from time to time. Some remain in position today in non operating condition, most removed, and some restored in private hands. Loudest sirens ever made.
