What is the point of these train horns? I have seen the videos.. I've even heard a few in person. I guess I don't get it.. Only time I ever see them used is to freak people out, and to get attention as they are cruising through downtown ft worth or Dallas.

IMO Tundra drivers have a little more sense than that haha.. I could see some of these Chevy guys doing that though!

Occasionally I have used it like the horn when it looks like someone might hit me. More often than not I use them to get animals /vultures out of the road. Got a few people's attention on the job site and in a plant.

That would be kinda fun but I think I will have to pass for now. Would rather save up for the .50 cal mount. No need for horns then.

Train horns may have the exact opposite effect, you may startle someone so much they are slower to respond.

FYI - they are also illegal in Texas.

I haven't encountered anything different then making someone stop in their tracks which is the correct effect. The only thing the law says is unreasonably loud so if your abusing it you will probably end up with a ticket. Otherwise there is nothing illegal about having it on the truck.

I'm interested. Nothing like a loud horn to remind all the inconsiderate drivers out there that they are not the only ones on the road.

How much does the one your looking at cost? I didn't see a price in the description.

What about any other people/vehicles that also stopped in their tracks because they happened to be nearby, was that also the correct effect?

'not abusing it' is not a defense to prosecution.
If you sound it just once, a cop hears you, and decides to cite you for violating Sec. 547.501 of the Texas Transportation Code, then good luck convincing a judge that a train horn does not "...emit an unreasonably loud or harsh sound....".

You may be lucky, and not get a ticket. You may be unlucky and cause an accident.
The last thing I want is some jackass sounding a train horn when I'm trying to get some sleep on my drive to work.

Yup, still the correct effect. Maybe it prevented them from being hit by the same person. I know when I hear a fire truck sounding air horns I don't immediately slam on my brakes causing a 10 car accident. Its probably safe to say that one that isn't as loud from being mounted under the truck is going to have a similar effect. Same goes for dump trucks, tractor trailers, and anything else that uses an air system for brakes. You hear a lot about these types of wrecks in your neck of the woods?

Depends on the cop and the situation I guess. If I just saved a line of kids from getting run over my chances of getting a ticket are probably pretty slim. On the other hand anything up to the cops discretion is just that. Judges seldom let you off for anything thats left open to interpretation anyway. Exhibition of acceleration comes to mind.

Oh bless your little heart. I could also prevent several accidents from some jacknut sleeping on the drive to work.. The best thing is I will tip my hat to you and offer a friendly wave for offending you personally.

And just to add something more constructive to the thread instead of derailing it with opinions.. Don't skimp on the compressor. You can use it for a lot of other things besides the horn for not much more money. Lockers, airbags, tire inflation etc.
