Default Train horn!!

a couple of my friends have them an I like the idea of having it. so I'm thinking about hooking up a train horn on my truck. the stock horn doesn't seem to cut it some times, some people must be listening to their music to loud or be deaf! lol anyways need some advice on where to get one (without stealing one off a train or 18wheeler), what exactly all I need like a compressor (whats a good size an not to expensive) depending on how big, air tank for storage, horns, wire all that stuff. and any tips on hooking it up, where is a good spot to mount it. post any pics you guys have of yours! thanks in advance
