What was his reason for buying it?  Just sh*ts and giggles?
That's my opinion. Take it, leave it, or correct me.

I would laugh, I would probably die from laughing from the train "parts" so long as the "parts" are well hidden and unable to be turned off. My suggestion would be to add an alarm with an output to either activate "parts" remotely and turn it off remotely.

A pair of train horns in the rafters, early in the morning, in a dark shop is enough to make any one go back home to get some fresh undies :-)
These things get rediculously loud with only about 80psi at about 1.5CFM..... by the time the 60 gal tank runs out on the compressor, you've had enough.
And, of course, there is nothing like a 3kHz tone through an old JBL 2245 4" compression driver to really make you want to put your head in a vice....... nails on a chalk board have nothing on this.

After high school and before I went in the Navy, I worked for Dynapac. We built asphalt pavers and the like. Myself and another young guy worked on the 20 ton machine assembly line. We had to provide our own tools except for specialty tools and consumables like Loctite which we got in pint bottles. The two of us played pranks on each other constantly with a little escalation in seriousness of  the prank with each one getting closer and closer to that line you don't cross, messing with someones tools. Most of us never locked our tool boxes. I came in on a monday morning and thought it odd that the lid was down on my tool box. When I opened it up, I found my tool box loaded with, you guessed it, Loctite. I went off on him for a little while. His response? I guess that's it, I win. When I calmed down, I went and apologized for going off like that and agreed he had won and we agreed, no more pranks.

You probably thought that the story was over like he did! Not so.He went out to lunch and I ate at the plant. When he came back from lunch he saw his tool box on the machine he was building. It was about 1/2 complete. The tool box was sitting on the fuel tank which was made of 3/4 inck steel plate and the hasp was butted up against the radiator guard which was made of 3/8 inch steel plate. He was laughing thinking the prank was me moving his tool box. The smile on his face was removed when he realized the tool box was welded to the fuel tank. That was the last prank! Now the story is over.
