This sound recording courtesy of Donny, Chief engineer at the Spencer, North Carolina State Transportation Museum. Unit #1860 is an Opposed-Piston Fairbanks Morse engine, Horn s from a Ferry boat (marine) unit.
All sounds recorded by AJ Ireland off #1860 at Spencer in 2006.

For CV155=01 ["Semi_automatic Notching"], the Prime mover lowest Notch setting is set by the throttle speed setting. F6 (ON) can increase the Notch and F7 (ON) will decrease the Prime mover to the minimum notch set by current throttle setting.

If you leave F5 on, you can wind the engine handbrake forever!!
