Hello, Any train air horn enthusiasts on here?

Greetings from southern Ontario!

I am a fellow railroad enthusiast, and i have traveled to these forums in search of something extremely specific.

About 20 years ago, i was walking along the train tracks in the middle of the winter, when i noticed some type of a gear sticking out of the frozen ice. The object was well frozen in the ice, and took me about 30 minutes of work to get out. What seemed like a small gear box was in reality a 2 foot long train horn! Low and behold this beauty still works! and she has a fantastic sound as well.

This train horn has been one of my most prized possessions i have had my entire life, and i am looking for anyone with the knowledge or experience of how to rebuild a horn like this to its original glory.

Please see attached images.

Hello Poezdnik the Railway Forum. I know very little about the Ukraine and Russian Railway systems. Do they have any steam loco's still working anywhere?
