The most popular of the Tyfon series for railroad use was the Tyfon A-200-156. This was Leslie's deep-note horn for road locomotives. The A-200 appeared on many early diesels and electric locomotives from the 1930s through the 1950s. Locomotives that had A-200s included the popular GG1s, ALCO RS1s, RS3s, PAs, FAs, EMD E and F units, and GP7s to name a few. Some late-1940s steam locomotives even included A-200 horns on them, such as the Southern Pacific Daylight locomotives like 4449. Leslie A-200s can still be heard on some older locomotives, though their numbers are dwindling.
