Large Brass Locomotive Bell

A pneumatic bell operated by air from the brake system of a steam engine. 14 1/2 diameter at rim. Marked 1414 in numerous places, referring to the engine number. The pneumatic cylinder does not work at 60psi - it may need a new o-ring and gasket or it may require more pressure. The piston moves smoothly. The bright brass bell has many small dings, but is, nevertheless impressive. The hollow mounting bolt is long enough to mount on a 2 plank (as shown) and also serves as the airline inlet. The bell has a good tone and can be converted to manual use with a rope.
