    Or actually realize that train horns are only for seriously stunted morons. Hopefully you don't shot if you get one.

    Why is this in 2nd Gen?

    i would suggest just buy the 4 horn xl kit from them then buy your own 12vlt comp. that would be the best route just make sure it can support enough psi...sur you can find a compressor and hook you own tank to it also...

    i just found a tank and compressor online for$40 then the $250 for the 4 horn kit with hose and fittings for horns to tank...comes with cylinoid valve so you will need wire to wire up a switch and power

    after watching the video, I see they are quite popular with the 14yo crowd. as the bleary eyed guy munching on a bag of Doritos laughs in the background.

    I have the Hornblasters Conductor's Special Shocker XL... Yea, it was pricey, and I could've gotten a lot of the parts from a local hardware store, but it was nice knowing that I had all the parts I needed in the box...

    Sound was an issue too... If you go with cheap horns, the sound will be shitty... The Shockers sound great and of course the air chimes are closer to a real train horn!

    Here's a link to my install... These guys will help ya out if you run into any issues...

    I have a grover 1510 firetruck horn, VIAIR 280c on a 1.5 gal tank. tank is mounted on the crossmember at the back of the cab, and the solenoid is on a momentary on button instead of the regular horn activation.

    When installing, try and get the solenoid as close to the horn as possible so there is little delay from when you activate it and it sounds
