Another NICE series of photos and fast freight videos. Nice sounding horns on all the trains.

8982 had the nicest horn. The SD70ACE, and AH units have the K5LL horns. The ones on the newer units sound similar to the old Nathan M5 horns.
As the units get older, the good quality of sound seems to deteriorate.

Thanks for sharing some nice vids and shots. That one hogger gave the longest horn blast I've ever heard. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
