From my "stash"... No badge on it, but it has the small motor, and a SolaRay in front, and a rear flashing light. Without the rear flashing light, it would be a Federal Y siren, but I don't know if it would be a YRL or what. When was this siren introduced, do you know? This is going to be one of the "Keepers". I would like to put the correct badge on it at some point.

Hi Paul this siren is in my opinion a WLR very popular in Canada the only thing is the front light may have been changed as was done at times,. the light only flashed .Looks in good condition.Len

The siren without the rear light is a Y siren. The question is, what is it called when the rear light is added. The SolaRay light in the front is what makes this a Y siren, and the W siren has a single blinking light in the front. A WLR is a W siren, L = light, and R = rear. If anything, this would be a YLR, but I am not certain about this, so this is why I have asked. I was hoping that someone with a lot of knowledge about sirens would have the resources to look this up in one of their catalogs in their collection.

Thanks... That is what I was looking for. The siren pictured would be a YR if I deciphered the page correctly. thanks again... Paul
