I know this is a bid, but this price is what bells should go for... even with the shipping price.: www.ebay.com/itm/Western-Cullen-Hayes-W ... Sww9xZGHQX

In my opinion this is another overpriced WCH bell http://www.ebay.com/itm/WC-HAYES-WESTER ... Sw8lpZMxY2

You get free shipping, but personally I don't like the way the listing was done. The description says the bell is in "very nice used condition" but doesn't actually say if it works. There is only one photograph and they haven't even bothered to open up the bell and take pictures of the insides, so what are you really buying?

I've seen listings in the past where the seller has included a video link showing the bell in operation, I think that's a great idea!

225 bucks for a WRRS bell, you've got to be out of your mind! :Blink:

Now this is plain ridiculous, 957 bucks for a vintage EMD Antique Steam Locomotive Engine Bronze Bell. That is way too overpriced.

Network Rail, why haven't you got any level crossing installation signs installed for Merseyside yet?

Actually, that ain't too bad, especially since it's a mini-bell. You can find traffic lights on eBay that are more expensive than that.

It's a WRRS mini bell. Those are different from the regular WRRS bells. Also, they're pretty high up there on the rarity scale as well.

Here's a WRRS "mini" bell:

And then here's a WRRS mechanical bell:
