I think has already been posted, but for the heck of it, why not?

Poor bell is being abused by Dreamworld though.

This crossing in Lal Lal still had a Teardrop in 2010.

Sadly, that bell has been replaced. You can hear a new Safetran E-bell in this video shot in 2011:

I'm not sure if this has been posted.

Here is a McK&H teardrop on a defunct but still working crossing in West Croydon, Southern Australia.

For a second, I thought that the crossbuck on the other signal was a 90 degree one.

That's not a Teardrop bell. It's either a WRRS or WCH bell.

Mount Eliza, Victoria.

Mornington, Victoria.

Both of the crossings are located on the Mornington Railway which is a heritage railway.

Some along the now defunct South Gippsland Tourist Railway, which folded in early 2016.

Warragul Road, Korumburra (the bell looks like it could do with some new paint).

Turner Street, Leongatha.

A more recent view of the crossing (also note the old crossbuck with the hazard triangle).

Sadly, the other crossing in Leongatha (Roughead Street) hasn't been as lucky. Just last year, it had it's signals and it's Teardrop bell removed as part of a Freight Route Upgrade. :Awww:

Here's the former signals, with the rainy weather summing up the crossing's fate.
