Santa Fe 485 with diesel roar and diesel horn

My Santa Fe 485 with diesel roar and diesel horn does not work properly. Diesel roar is functioning great however the diesel horn is barely audible and not audible at all at higher speed. When I place the transformer in neutral position the diesel horn works loud and clear. Not sure if is a wiring issue. I've included some pics

Thank you for your responses. I am using a 22090 transformer and my track is hard wired every 4 sections with 14 gauge wire to the buss. Yes, that is an after market speaker I purchased from portlines. I will double check with Doug Peck. Of all the things I've done to make my layout great, I never inspected or cleaned the track pins. I will try cleaning the pins and apply a little dielectric grease. There are a lot of them. Sound like a good plan. Thanks.
