The new station at Horse Chops consisted of a flat-roofed dwelling house and engine house, both painted white. A diaphone fog alarm was used to produce the following pattern of blasts: three-second blast, ten seconds of silence, three-second blast, ninety-four seconds of silence according to a 1933 List of Lights, but the next year the characteristic was listed as a three-and-a-half-second blast every sixty-five seconds.
One of the early keepers of the fog alarm was Garland Bannister, shown here in a photograph taken sometime before 1942.
In 2021, an automated horn was sounding a four-second blast each minute at Horse Chops.
Keepers: Garland Bannister (at least 1935), George Bugden, George Clements Penny, Harold Tucker, George Evans, Fred Bowers, George Thomas.
