I used to live close to a couple WABCO bells.

Here is a video I got of one of those crossings.

Are WABCO bells that uncommon or special, though?

I'd say so. Not too many left in service these days...
There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

Still not as uncommon as...say, a Safetran Type-1 e-bell or a US&S teardrop.


....or even US&S mechanical bells.

I'd say that US&S mechanical bells are more common, though they're harder to find on Google Maps due to the fact that they're essentially a rebranded MI bell, and look exactly the same from the front. At the very least, US&S mechanical bells are about as common as WABCO bells.

As of right now, I am currently getting RR crossing pics from mostly Tennessee and Kentucky. And I have been getting Ohio pics as well. For the rest of the year, I will consist of Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Florida, and (possibly) Georgia RR Crossing Pictures. I may also see about getting out to Mississippi for RR crossings, but that remains to be seen.
