Steam Soundz

Whistle and Horn Sounds

N3V categorizes Trainz's whistles and horns under one category they call "hornsounds", so I guess I'm stuck with putting the whistle sound files I've created under "hornsounds" (although it seems almost sacrilegious to do so!)

You can download all of these files from the Trainz Download Station (DLS).
