This Italian crossing has a couple of very flat sounding teardrop bells...

I have posted that here before.

Crossing has since sadly been upgraded, using that annoying black yodalarm and those ugly Polish-looking gate mechanisms, Lydney Junction was also upgraded too.

The Safetran Type 3 here doesn't sound very happy!
There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

Not quite a bell, again, but one of the alarms at this crossing in Cornwall sounded rather jumpy.


Although as of September 2018, the issue appears to have been resolved.

Also skipped a few beats while ringing, likely why those are to be replaced within the next year or so (which means I should probably get back up there as soon as possible).
