We are looking for a train horn. I don't have a problem installing another tank, but I didn't know if electric was better. Just in the looking stage I found some Wolo's http://www.wolo-mfg.com/truck.htm.

Some of the horns on that page looked kind of interesting. What do you all think, and which one?

I'm going to be installing one like "The Chief" with a lanyard -- I'm also trying to find one like the early Disneyland Monorails had (for routine use off the floor switch) and use the horn button for the electric.  That will give me my choice as needed.

Squirrels store food in bus. Are they bus nuts?

On both my big rig and my bus I am using the 4 chime Buell train horn kit for trucks.  Go to buell.com and notice how much bigger in diameter the horn throat is by the base reed end of the horn.  These horns really get out and have a distinct tone to them (purposely toned differently then any available train horn so not to be mistaken for a train).  Good Luck, TomC

Tom, it's http://www.buellairhorns.com  The other site gives you motorcycles, which is kinda related. Perhaps we can do a "Mythbusters" type of experiment to see if we can blast a Buell motorcycle off the road with a Buell airhorn?  Roll Eyes

Doug, thanks for the link. I sure couldn't find where the air horns were on the original site, but I didn't want to post and say I couldn't find it. I figured then somebody would say that it was right in front of my nose the whole time, and I would again be an idiot Grin Wink Grin.


God bless,


Sold - MCI 1995 DL3. DD S60 with a Allison B500.
