That is quick fill time! I've been looking at this set up via eBay... Anybody have any luck with this or similar?

To run the train horn you'll need a switch, and solenoid like te one in the first pic. (Airhorn guys will hook you up on this)

If you get a vair system it comes with the gauge shown but the hose is rather short that you use to fill tires. So I got a 25 foot coiled hose for cheap. From the solenoid you will run hose through your floor (if done like me) to the horn wiring the solenoid to a switch close by so you can scare and deafen peeps

That gauge and switch is for your horns?

The gauge and switch with it controls the compressor. If left on it will fill to 150psi, turn off then auto cut on at 125psi. The switches in front of my shifter are (L to R) front lights, rear lights, then on the right the blue switch is always lit up controls the horn.

It works well, right at the flick of a finger I can make someone soil their pants without fumbling to find a switch. Also being lit up at night helps too. Oh and the switches were bought at autozone for dirt cheap.

Look in the Puma 12v 1.5 gallon compressors. Ito rock sells a rebadged version with all the wiring needed. 3.4 Cfm at 40 psi is faster then any other electric compressor will do. You can separate the motor from the tank as well.

That's a great find! At only $230 I can definitely see going this route. That's a strong set up. And super quick.
