SEPTA operates approximately 332 pieces of equipment (locomotives) with train horns that were manufactured before the September 18, 2006, date.

SEPTA has recently realized that removal of trees at their Frazier Facility will allow the horn testing to be performed there. SEPTA requests that the requirement to complete testing of horns on locomotives built prior to September 18, 2006, be extended 6 months, to December 24, 2010.
