That would do, then, for models of GNR / UTA / NIR and CIE railcars of AEC origin... from that clip and from memory, it sounds sufficiently like the real thing, though all the horn-based squawks and squeaks don't sound realistic. The AECs had a quite distinctive two tone warning device. Sometimes the higher note was first, sometimes second. As a child it took me a while to work out why, until I saw how the driver operated it. There was a control lever which made one sound if pushed towards the driver, and the other if pushed away. If you sat in the first class section at the front of the railcar, you could see through into the cab and watch what the driver was doing.....
