Five Chime Consultants Airhorn Guide
The purpose of this page is to provide information on North American diesel locomotive air horns. We will attempt to provide detailed and accurate information regarding the many different types of diesel locomotive air horns that have been used in North America. Ultimately we plan to have a photo, brief technical description, sound clip, and notation regarding railroad utilization for each type of horn. It will take a while for all of this to develop so you may want to check this page on a regular basis for updates.
