"Home of the Diesel Airhorn"

July 7, 2014:Ed is currently offering several horns for sale from his collection.  Feel free to contact him if you have any interest in acquiring one his fine specimens.  Several horns from his collection can be heard in the sound files on this site.  The horns are well maintained and in immaculate condition.  They will last for many generations.  Good luck, and happy hunting!

Horns Inc. is not a business. Horns Inc. is an identity. It is the identity of a locomotive air horn enthusiast, collector, and preservationist. Ed not only fixes horns, but he also produces videos and sound files relating to his hobby of horn collecting.

The colors of this site represent the Pennsylvania railroad. The Pennsylvania was a Class 1 railroad before being merged into the Penn Central along with the New York Central in 1970. The Penn Central was subsidized by the government in 1976, and a large number of railroads were merged into it to become Consolidated Rail, or Con Rail. Con Rail was divided between the Norfolk Southern and CSX Corporation in 1996.

Ed grew up in Central NJ, along the Pennsylvania RR New York to Washington main line, now Amtrak's North East Corridor. All the PRR. Electrics were equipped with Leslie A-200 156 single note honkers. One day in 1953, Ed got on his bicycle and peddled over to the Lehigh Valley RR in Newark, NJ to the Allentown, Pa Line where he heard his first chime horn. It was a Nathan M-3! which to this day, is his all time favorite. Ed Acquired his first horn from the PRR In 1968, and guess what? It was a Nathan M-3! Love that mellow C#, E, A! Ed did work for the PRR for three years as a Brakemen. Than making his career with a power company As a heavy equipment operator for 33 years. Retiring to Pennsylvania in 1997, Ed focuses on collecting and rebuilding diesel air horns. Ed's OH WELL PRODUCTIONS video production, produces videos all about the Diesel Air horn Hobby, as well as Railroad video through out the USA featuring railroads in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Ed's diesel air horns have a deep sentimental value to him, he says "Money is easy to get, Diesel Air horns are not!" So, Ed's horns are not for sale, or trade, and will never be on the market! If you are looking for a horn, though, then click here.

It is hoped that the reader will enjoy this web site, and will also get a chance to purchase some of Ed's videos and sound track CDs. These are very large collections of sounds and videos consisting of a great variety of rare locomotive horns and units in operation. The horns featured on this web site represent a very small part of his collection.
