Leslie Rs-3l Locomotive Train Horn 3 Chime Sf Up Milw Soo Mkt Kcs El Reading E-l For Sale

Leslie Rs-3l Locomotive Train Horn 3 Chime Sf Up Milw Soo Mkt Kcs El Reading E-l

Here is a Leslie SuperTyfon S-3L airhorn. It has the 25, 31, and 44 bells and also spiked aluminum backplates on the horn chambers. The metal nameplate says Leslie, Tampa Florida 33617, lists some patents, the designation of RS L-3L-R, and a 7 digit serial number. It appears to be practically new, and the nameplate looks brand new, but it was connected to an air supply at one time.
From the 5 Chime Consultants webpage:
S-3L is a shorthand designation for any Leslie 3-chime Supertyfon horn that uses the #25, 31, and 44 bells (the "L" chord). The actual model designation of a given horn will have additional prefixes and suffixes. Here are the ones that apply to this horn
  • R indicates the improved design with spiked back caps,
  • S indicates a Supertyfon horn,
  • L=low profile manifold,
  • 3 is the number of horns,
  • L indicates the L Chord with the 25, 31, and 44 bells,
  • R=one or more bells reversed (turned backward) when this horn was made in the factory
The S-3L was introduced in the early 1950's as competition for the Nathan M-3. It rapidly became one of the most popular 3-chime airhorns ever produced. The S-3L was used extensively by Santa Fe, Union Pacific, Milwaukee Road, Soo Line, Missouri-Kansas-Texas (MKT), Chicago & Northwestern, Kansas City Southern, Erie Lackawanna, Reading, and many others.The S-3L was one of the most common multichime airhorns used by US railroads. In recent years, most of the large roads that used the S-3L have turned to Nathan horns instead. The horn remains in decreasing numbers on BNSF and former Conrail locomotives, as well as on regionals and shortlines nationwide.Factory tuning is: B inverted 7th (B,D#,A)...and there you have it!
Sound clips of this horn are on the webpage for 5 Chime Consultants.
The female pipe threads on the manifold are in fine condition and there should be no problem attaching this to an air hose.
This horn was apparently restored (not by me) with shiny new diaphragms, new gaskets, and new bolts. It has a nice aluminum bead blasted finish ready for new paint if you prefer! Someone apparently also reversed the middle horn so they all face the same way.
The horn is 23 1/2 inches wide, 10 3/8 inches tall, and 27 inches long. The biggest horn is 10 3/4 inches in diameter.
