Funny. I had a triple set of Train horns on a 99 Bounder diesel. It used so much air that I could watch the air pressure gauge drop as I blew the horn. I had to use it one time in AR to get a lady to move when the light turned green. I'm sure she had to do a pants change later. When parallel to a moving train in MO, the engineer would answer me when I blew it to him. It sure got people's attention.

Some place on You Tube are directions for making Nathan 5 chime train horn imitations. In the video they sound really good.

There are two major manufacturers of train whistles. Air Chime Manufacturing and Nathan. You will pay over $1,000 for a set of steel train whistles. There is a company that makes horns that very closely copy the sound of a train whistle (which is a C Sharp diminished musical chord) www.hornblasters.com

Send me a PM....

Very funny!
Just what you need when your stopped inches behind that Miata and the driver misses the light turning green because he/she is on the phone.

As a former railroad engineer, Iíve sounded a LOT of air horns over the years. Nathan is just one manufacturer of railroad air horns. Leslie is another well-known horn manufacturer.

You might check out http://www.dieselairhorns.com/ to see a selection of many different makes and models.

At this site - http://realtrainhorns.net/shop/index.php - youíll find air horn kits for sale.

And another... http://trainweb.org/mdamtrak199/horns.html

There are 1-chime through 6-chime horns available in various chords and tones. The Nathan K5LA is one of the most popular horns. Itís been used on Amtrak locomotives for many years.
