Pull chain switches

I installed a train horn not too long ago and I have it hooked up to just a basic switch.. well now I'm thinking about hooking up a pull chain like a big rig would have. Has anyone ever see this done before?

Haven't done it before, but I can give you a little info / advice. The ones in trucks / trains actually actuate an air valve rather than a switch. What you'd have to have is a pull chain switch that is momentary, meaning it is on when you pull and shuts off when you release the lanyard.

It can be done but the proper switch may be difficult to find.
