These die-cast horns are not for the faint of heart. If you are wanting the same majestic train horn sound you hear when you are stopped at the railroad tracks, this is the kit for you!

Our Nathan AirChime K3 540 train horn kit features the classic Nathan Airchime K3 train horns: A 3-chime die-cast horn that was built to withstand anything Mother Nature can throw at it and sound great doing it. Tried and tested for decades, you won't find a more dependable horn or a more recognizable train horn sound. Oh, and did we mention they are one of the loudest horns you can buy?

With a beast of a horn this size, you just can’t settle for a mediocre air system. With our Nathan AirChime K3 540 train horn kit, you get one of our fastest-filling premium onboard air systems. Our black 5-gallon 8-port air tank provides enough air to blast your K3 Train Horns for an entire 5-seconds continuous seconds, ensuring that you get your point across.

Horns are awesome!

Horn kit is the real deal and will get peoples attention quick. The only issue we had when using the mount kit was the fittings supplied with the kit were all straight fittings and we had to purchase 90 degree elbow fitting to make it work. If the kit had elbow fittings I would have given a 5 star review.
