WRRS and WCH M-Bells are pretty identical from the front so I don't blame ya for getting confused.

Even though this guy is asking 150 bucks for this RRS bell, it needs a ton of work done, needs repainting and the instruction manual on the side is missing.

Doesn't look too bad, IMO. Maybe needs a fresh coat of paint, but nothing major. I've noticed a lot of used bells have missing instruction manuals, especially when it comes to older bells like that.

That's a WRRS bell, not an RRS bell.

This guy is dreaming, he wants 700 bucks for someone to buy just a Safetran gate motor, he's way out of the park.

LOL that guy is way past dreaming, he's in total fantasy land. Not sure how much for other countries, but for Australia he wants $335 just for shipping :Blink:

Here's another guy who is doing some serious dreaming, wants $500 for a used WCH m-bell. You could probably buy a brand new one for the same amount, or cheaper. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Railro ... SwwZtaXRrX

I'm pretty sure that a brand new WCH mechanical bell will only set you back $300 before shipping here in the US, so that used bell is literally more expensive than a new one.

I see it all the time with traffic lights. A 12 inch aluminum McCain three color signal will only run about $200 to $300 (IIRC) before shipping for a brand new one* and you can even have it made to the specifications you want**, but I've seen people on eBay trying to sell corroded 12 inch aluminum McCain signals with LEDs for much more than that. :Roll:

*McCain PV signals are much, much more expensive
**Things you can specify are the color from a small list of colors and visor type, and maybe the model of LEDs, but I'm not certain on the last one
