Locomotive Horn Questions


Photo Creator
-I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a website that could tell me what horns go to which locomotive per each railroad? (mostly interested in west coast railroads... bnsf, up, etc.) If anyone out there is an expert on horns that would be great.

-Example... Just a little guess here, a k5lla goes on a gevo for bnsf.

-Point being, I want to replace some horns on some locomotives but I want to stay prototypical to the real deal. Thanks in advance.

well if I'm right most diesel locomotives running on CSX now days has Leslie k5las type air horns but then you also had engines with the rs5t types as well, the source I'm reading the information is on Wikipedia.
