While setting up my new Athearn CB&Q GP-7 241, I noticed a firecracker antenna on the roof. Athearn’s CB&Q GP-7 218 doesn’t have one. What year were firecracker antennas introduced? My F units with antennas all have wagon wheels, so I’m trying to avoid anachronisms. I have photos of #241 with and without the firecracker antenna, but I don’t have any information about when the photos were taken or when it was installed. The side sill strips are red and yellow before Scotchlite safety stipes were used. One of my 241 photos also has a GP-30 I Chinese Red and Gray, if that helps date the firecracker.
