A horn is any of a family of musical instruments made of a tube, usually made of metal and often curved in various ways, with one narrow end into which the musician blows, and a wide end from which sound emerges. In horns, unlike some other brass instruments such as the trumpet , the bore gradually increases in width through most of its length—that is to say, it is conical rather than cylindrical. As the name indicates, people originally used to blow on the actual horns of animals before starting to emulate them in metal or other materials. Apparently of Asian origin, they reached Europe from Byzantium in the tenth or eleventh century, and are first mentioned in French literature in the early 12th century.

A train horn is a loud, powerful air horn that serves as an audible warning device on electric and diesel locomotives, electric or diesel power cars , and in electric and diesel multiple units. The horn's primary purpose is to alert persons and animals to an oncoming train , especially when approaching a level crossing. The horn is also used for acknowledging signals given by railroad employees, such as during switching operations. Since trains move on fixed rails , they are uniquely susceptible to collision. This susceptibility is exacerbated by the enormous weight and inertia of a train, which make it difficult to quickly stop when encountering an obstacle.
