Train Air Horns Sound For Trucks
By James Kimber
Years ago, I loved hearing train whistles. Paul Simon sings, Everyone loves the sound of a train in the distance. I still love that sound, but I want it louder.
What used to be infatuation of die cast trucks and cars as a kid, I now relate to my pickup truck. Prior to the late 1970’s or early 80’s, only trains and commercial emergency vehicles had air horns. They were not available for consumer purchase. Then truck air horns became scarcely available in 1 or 2 trumpet configurations. However, none of these horns were available with a compressor kit included. As demand and popularity grew, truck air horns became more readily available. That made guys like me sit up and take notice, but for me, those were the days of vehicles with car seats and strollers, so I didn’t own a truck.
Once I was able to have a truck of my own, there was nothing I loved more than finding a new accessory that would beef up my F-150 and give it the custom look that I feel reflects my personality. In my search for the newest flashiest and useful add on, and I came across an online video of a train sound.Trucks have been my interest since I was young.
There I was in the past remembering hearing it countless times. But I’m in the future now and looking for things for my truck. Hell yeah! I wanted that air horn kit! The sound was incredible. Just knowing I could have that on my truck and hear it anytime I chose to made my day. I ordered the quad chrome trumpet 150 PSI Kit and I swear, I was like my wife, anxiously waiting for the UPS man to deliver her newest pair of high heels. Yes, I was that obsessed! The day my kit arrived, I had to install it right away. Dinner? No thanks, I was a man on a mission.
I was in heaven the first time I blasted that baby, and every time since! How did I ever settle for a wimpy factory horn sound? It just goes to prove that boys and their toys never really disappear; they just age like fine wine.
