This is an overview of the install of my Viair Ultra Light Duty onboard air system and my Wolo Model 847 Siberian Express 'Train Horn' that I installed on my 2002 Jeep Wrangler: Sahara Edition.
The tank is 1 gallon and though it does sound the horn for short blasts you'll likely want the 2.5 gallon tank for longer runs of the horns. The closest horn I can think of that this one resembles would be a Nathan P3 but the tone is definatly off from that one.
Overall the entire Jeep is a big toy for me and this is something I've wanted to do for years. I figured the rail enthusiasts would appreciate it and fellow Jeep owners would like to see how the set up was installed.
For the horn 'purests' out there that think it's a virtual sin to place a horn of this magnitude on a vehicle, feel free to complain away. My skin is thick.

Ford F-150 Train Horn Installation
Chris Duke from Motorz TV http://www.motorz.tv/ shows you how to install a
real 180dB train horn kit on our project truck with 4 horns, a 3 gallon air
tank and a 160 PSI air compressor.
Big air for a big horn
Showing off my 32 gallon train horn air set up, and explaining how
everything works. Brought out my S5T, which I turned into an RS5T for the
first test of the new set up. Lol at the 55 bell...
The compressor is not modified to run off 12V from the car, I plug it in at
home and fill the tanks there, the tanks just drain down and do not refill
when I'm blowing the horn.
Ship Horn Truck at TCSP.m4v
We met this man while camping at Traverse City state Park. He had rigged
his flat bed pick up truck with all kinds of ship and train horns, all
hooked up to a compressor. He gave us a very brief demonstration, but we
didn't hear half of what this thing could really do, sound and volume wise!

I was asked for a small how-to on how I wired up my dash switches and I
went a little overboard with it. I hope the basics help someone out there.
Onboard Air Systems
Onboard Air Delivery Systems can supply a constant flow which is not only
great for tyre inflation and re-seating a tyre bead. But can run pneumatic
(airbag) suspension, air lockers (regulate pressure to lockers to maintain
150psi in the tank for other uses), air tools, Exhaust jacks and inflating equipment such as
boats and inflatable tents. Onboard air is fantastic for use in both
recreational and commercial environments. Bushranger Onboard Air systems
are powered by Viair Compressors, all tanks are tested and meet Australian

While waiting for the next train at Cedar Lane, I heard a train horn, but
it sounded like the sound was coming perpendicular from the tracks.
Soon enough, a lifted Chevy truck came by and started blasting a Nathan
K5LA! Wow this was awesome!
