    I am still learning myself, but if you get the correct decoder it will usually have the correct horn.

    There are currently two ways to get the "correct" horn:

    1) Get the correct sound decoder, as Les says.

    2) Get a sound decoder that allows uploading sounds, and find a sound file of the correct horn. Digitrax is one company that offers this type of decoder: Digitrax.com: Product Listing Sound Decoders

    Look into ESU/Loksound. Their sound decoders are completely customizable. Or you need to get one that has the correct sounds in it from the start.

    According to Digitrax's website, you can upload .wav files to their decoders as part of a "sound project file" (.spj) so any sound that is saved in that format is possible - Dukes of Hazzard, lion roar, Thomas "peep-peep", or anything else you want.
