    Can anyone tell me what type and size fan is on the rear of the new Norfolk Southern F9A unit. Looks to be a 48 inch fan maybe. Thanks.

    Nick,From what I can tell it is a 48" fan and looks very similar to a GP20 fan.

    Is the horn considered a 5 chime horn. I can't find one in HO scale.

    Yep, they've stuck a 48" fan over where the 36" fan and winterization hatch were.

    The horn is a Nathan K5 Low Profile. Details West has one - Walthers part #235-252.
