Here's something you don't see or hear often: a present-day commuter train with a Leslie RS5T horn (a.k.a. "The King of Horns").

The A-2 was a single-note horn used primarily on switchers, locomotive cranes, self-propelled railcars, and the like. It was available in both a 15 inch "long bell" version and a 11-5/32 inch "short bell" version both pictured here.Wabco also produced a two-chime AA-2 horn which combined a long and short bell A-2 on a common manifold. The A-2 was fairly common on Alco switchers of many railroads.

I've been researching the Ashton Valve Co for a couple of years. They manufactured a variety of Railroad related items including safety valves, gauges, whistles, etc. If anyone has any information on the company please contact me.
