te descriptions says the bell rings just fine so if your interested nathanfromengland and have enough money for it id say go for it. go ahead and pick it up!

He lives in England, and that just ships to within the US.

Also, there might not be any wires due to the wires that connected to the rest of the signal from the bell having been removed prior to removal.


oh are you by any chance interested in picking up the bell!

Not that bad, really. Most new crossing bells cost about that much.

Seller has since lowered the bid to $600, it's still too expensive, and IMO, it would need a lot of work done to get it working again
