I drove that train on Friday and it's just a faulty whistle as the high note whistle is still a normal Siemens high whistle. I doubt they are combining Xtrap and Siemens whistles together.

A mate of mine who works at Metro maintaining the Siemens fleet has the following to add:
The supplier for the “low” tone trumpet for the horn on the Siemens train no longer make them, so they are indeed changing them for the same ones used on the X-trap fleet. Whenever a “low” tone trumpet becomes unserviceable it will be changed over.

A horn is not a whistle. 153M has a horn, whereas K153 has a whistle.

You will find that the technical term for the "horn" is indeed a whistle.

Yes, it's a bit of a necro but it explains why I've recently been hearing X'Trapolis horns sounding at Huntingdale station, all the way in East Oakleigh. For a moment there I thinking that if they've finally certified the X'Trapolis for use on the Dandenong line, I must've missed the announcement.
