This locomotive was powered by 2 Maybach MD655" which were used to power the "Westerns Class 52" but from what I understand the tone was different to the “Westerns” as the westerns where hydraulic transmission, But saying that, it is the closest you will get to the sound for “Falcon”. As for the warning horn that is going to be a difficult sound to replicate as to my knowledge there is no sound track for the “Falcon” when it was in services and when it was filmed in services cine cameras did have the ability to record sound. I could be wrong.

They would possibly be the same as a 31 or maybe 47

I'm sure spotters in South Wales where the loco was based for its last few years would be able to tell you if you posed the question in the welsh area group

Also look at the railways of Wales
