So, does anyone have train horns?
I had a truck came by me one day at the beach and had them. Sounds awesome.

to make train horns work you need a large air canister and ALOT OF VOLUME to the horn when i install these onto a semi truck i rig it on a 1inch pipe from the air tank straight to the horn the horn will drain 3 20gallon air tanks in about 1 and a half minutes when its activated


so on a motorcycle you'd need to remove a saddle bag and mount a air tank there and install a large air pump not just to build the air but to build it back up with in your lifetime a small 12volt air compressor would take about 6 months to fill that to capacity

it would take some doing but its not impossible.

No reason someone couldn't use three or four of those small 12V compressors in parallel to speed up recovery time, they don't take up much room or weigh much.

The "REAL" train horns are known as Chimes, and the best (IMO) are from Nathan.

Just put Nathan Train Chimes in Google and have fun.

They're up on eBay sometimes, and go for mad money. You need a heckuva compressor, and would probably take 10mph off your forward speed on a Goldwing.

How about mounting them backwards. Air propulsion.
