I will get some pictures to add to the post, just seeing if there would be any interest in locomotive horns. There are 5 on the bar and they are the real deal and loud.


Thanks, Phil

Last fall I saw a guy had some on a boat. When he was going down the water with both walls high up on each side of the lake when he would blow it wow it was loud but sounded awesome! Good luck with your sale!

How in the heck is a locomotive horn operated? I always thought air pressure?
It would be kind of neat to have if you could operate it!

The one I saw ran of an air compressor in the trunk.
I'd love to pull up in front of my daughter's boyfriend's house and honk that a few time's. Wonder if he'd get the picture.

There are the pics as requested, they did indeed run by air as you can see the flange and gasket on them. I have it plumbed to a ball valve and hose barb. My air compressor has no problem blowing them, make sure you have plenty of hearing protection. Price on these are $650 plus about $50 to ship or can hold til a show if paid for in advance.


Thanks, Phil

...you should keep it at least until Dixie, and blast it from the top of the hill...

I have a brass ships horn about the size of the largest in your cluster. First time I tested it out a trucker from the interstate responded back.
