Date Unknown - Santa Fe Siren

The Santa Fe Siren was located on top of the east end of the power plant. (see arrow)

We do not know the year that it was installed, its manufacturer, its use or anything else about it.

The siren was removed from the power plant before the destruction of the shops in the early 1990s.

It was saved and put into storage in the City Maintenance Yard.  It was later transferred to the San Bernardino History and Railroad Museum, where it is on public display.

The siren is significant in that it is one of few artifacts remaining from the more than 100 years of Santa Fe's presence in San Bernardino. The other remaining Santa Fe items include; the Depot, the Smokestack, the Whistle and a couple of Santa Fe clocks.
