Ken - Adding to Bryan's comments, if you're a member of the BRHS, go to their web site and within the Members Only Section visit the Flickr portion that has an Album of E5 photographs. Some images show the horns that were used on the units - Louis

This was discussed back in 2019 here on the list. This was my response to that thread:
The E5s were originally equipped with a Leslie A-200 and an A-200-H, with the H model being the higher pitched note. It sounded an A# while the A-200 sounded a D#. From photo analysis, it appears the A-200 was/is located over the fireman's side with the A-200-H on the engineer's side, making it the one replaced by the Leslie S-2M in later years. Per previous messages on this list from the late Ed DeRouin, the country horn was the S-2M and the city horn was the A-200. With all that said, in looking at photos of the 9908, the two horns are slightly different with the one over the engineer's side looking like the smaller A-200-H, so I would surmise it is equipped with an A-200 and an A-200-H like the as-delivered E5s. Perhaps we should bring a ladder to the 2021 St. Louis meet and perform an inspection!
For your second question, Loksound and Tsunami both would have sound files that would work since the 9908 was equipped with a 567 V-12. Beyond that, it would come down to personal preference on which to go with. I'm a fan of Loksound, but Tsunami is good as well.

What horns did the Silver Charger use?
I don’t know if they were changed but I am looking for original to 1940.
And while asking what is a good sound unit for engine and horn?
