MEC Air Horns
Author: jburek

Does anyone know what type air horns were used on Maine Centrals RS11's?  From some of the pictures i've seen it looks like they might be Nathan M3's, but can't quite tell.  Any help appreciated.

Thank you Jim. I know the MEC U18b's had the Nathan M-3RT1's and really couldn't quite tell what was in the RS11's from the photos. Thanks for reply - working on MEC #801 & wanted to get it right.

Many MEC units got 5-chime horns in later years; most of the GP38's and U18's did. Not Nathans ... K5-somethings maybe?
