If you want them to sound just like a freight train, then you want the Nathan Air chimes. The loudest will be the K5LA manifold....It just means that there are 5 horns instead. They also have a 3 series, and they sound good, but not as loud and accurate as a freight train. I have the K5LA system, and it will rattle the ground at full pressure!!!!

Hornblasters.com has a "mini conductor" set (a friend of mine has them) and they sound like a train to me.

Hey, different strokes for different folks, I guess. I think you will be drawing attention by many and some of those aren't the kind that will appreciate it. You might think, "who cares" but I think the party will be over soon for all of us. Stacks and horns and black smoke for the sake of smoke will be hastening the dreaded, "last call", put you stock crap on and go to that state run building and get an inspection. It's a comin. Believe it.

I have a set of tripple trumpets that sound very good but there are no markings on them so I am not sure who made them.

Sorry, I know that didnt help.

I didn't say you did, bud. The more attention we draw to ourselves, the sooner all of our fun will be over. I am not some uppity liberal. The horns are legal, but when you piss someone off by scaring the bejesus out of them, they may notice the puff of black smoke. I am deleted and hope to stay that way as long as possible. Why so sensitive? Maybe everyone else is in the wrong place if you only want similar opinions.
