Nathan M3  Locomotive Train Horn 3 Chime From C&nw Cnw 4302 Gp9 Sp Sp&s Prr D&h

Here is a Nathan M3 airhorn. It came off CNW 4302 GP9R (see pics). This was common on GP9's from the 1950's to the 1970's. It is the only railroad air horn that can be TUNED.It has the 1, 2, and 4 bells.From the 5 Chime Consultants webpage:
The M3 was first produced in 1950. M3's were the common horn on the Denver Rio Grande Western and were quite common on locomotives operated by SP, SP&S, Pennsy, D&H and many other Eastern railroads.Factory tuning for the M3 was: A major triad (C#,E,A). Over time as a result of use, C#,D#,A, C#,E,A#, and C#,D#,A# dischords were common. The horn used the M-series #1, 2, and 4 bells.The M3 suffered the maintenance problems common to all M-series horns. Once very popular, few new M3's have been made since the early 1980's, and the horns are rare to find in use today. Willamette & Pacific applied old M3's to most of their locomotives in the 1990's, and a few shortlines still have locomotives with M3's. A scattered handful of M3's survive on Union Pacific, mostly on former Rio Grande power.
...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) and is currently painted a worn gun metal gray color.The horn is 19 1/2 inches wide, 10 inches tall, and 15 inches long. The biggest horn is 8 inches in diameter. The inlet is sized for 1/2 inch pipe.Good luck with your offer!!FREE SHIPPING to the lower US 48 States! Actual shipping everywhere else.
