In addition to photographing trains, I have always been interested in the sound of their horns. I have put together a legitimately obtained collection of four older horns and one air whistle that I have restored to like-new operating condition. Each one represents the now increasingly unique chords I grew up listening to by the tracks. The M5 is the oldest built in 1952, while the K5LA is the youngest having been built in the 1980′s. I am a collector only, and not a reseller of horns.
Photographs of each horn and air whistle can be found in the Photo Gallery section under “Ken Fitzgerald’s Horn Collection.”
