MOVE!!!! Train coming :)!!!!

Finally took pics of my new train horns.

5 trumpet Strategic separates
3 trumpet Anvil horns
Viair 380c 200psi Compressor
2 3 gallon tanks (6 gallons of air total)

Everything was purchased from Seige Engineering on Ebay. I would buy from these guys again in a heart beat. They have the best customer service I have ever dealt with. They always answer the phone and put the customer first.

I mounted the horns between the grill and the radiator. There is a plastic cover that sits on top of the radiator. To prevent having to cut this for the top of the train horns I mounted a piece of metal to the crossmember in front of the radiator and then mounted the horns to the piece of metal. This dropped the top of the horns down 1".


I ran the air and electrical lines through the frame.



3 gallon tank mounted on the inside of the frame rail on the passenger side. Just clears the exhaust tubing by about an 1". So far no problems with the tank getting hot and I've had it for 2 months now.


Anvil train horns mounted on the cross member just behind the transfer case. These horns are huge. Barely had enough room to fit them.


Second 3 gallon tank and compressor mounted in the tool box.


These horns are amazingly loud!!!!! I can tell someone that I'm about to blow my horns and they still jump. These are not for childs play and can be heard for at least 2 miles. They are so loud that when I blow them at someone sitting at a red light and it turns green, they don't go becuase they are so starttled. So then I blow it again !!!

If anyone is wondering. I put stockings on the Anvil horns under the truck to keep water and dirt from going down the trumpets.

Thanks for the welcome. I hope to drive a diesel as my next truck. I had one prior to the F150. It was 94 F-250 7.3l IDI Turbo. I loved that truck!

If you want some after looking at them, you would need some after hearing them.

I blew them at a red light because a car was sitting through a green light. I didn't know it, but another truck in a different lane had some horns. So he blew his after hearing mine thinking he was big and bad too. I blew mine again and with the 6 gallons of air I wasn't about to run out anytime soon. I've seen the truck around and he doesn't blow them anymore. I think he realized that he can't compete.
