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
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.
