Train Horns!

Howdy Ya'll,

I had a quick question.... I wanted to put train horns on one of my duty's and wanted to have to overhead pull (like on a big rig) to blow the horns but also want to keep them concealed.

Has anybody every done/ attempted this?? If so, how would you go about installing it??

Thanks!

I have seen some pictures of a Dodge that someone used an overhead lever. He guided the wires/air hose up through the B-pillar and had the lever mounted right above his left ear. It looked rather shotty. Those original train horn levers are huge.

You can get the chain type valve at a heavy duty truck parts store, say a Fleet Pride for instance.

That would be a cleaner install. You might be able to run all the wires/air hoses up through the A-pillar and even a leather tassle like a big rig.

That would look cool.

That would be a cool install, I just wired mine to the horn... and that way when you hit the lock button it will beep the trainhorn instead of the factory horn. kind of a novelty

ya, it would look better w/ a strap or chain pull.

So, i would just need to get the valve from a big rig store + the stuff that comes w/ the train horn kit and I should be good or do you think I'm gonna need some other stuff??

I am not completely sure. I think you would need all those components, but for what you are wanting to do, it could take some special rigging.

That's what I was thinking too..... Probably take some special modifications to accomplish it.
