Yea, I'd say that is too high. It almost looks like that bell is partly painted green! :Blink:

Yea, it's definitely too high. I want to say they run for around $200 brand new, if not less than that.
There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

Send me or any other admin a private message or email if you want to submit crossing photos to the site!

Could be a Type 1. For stuff no longer in production, value definitely goes up especially if it is sparse.

Yeah, it could be. They don't make Type 1s anymore?

Wow... these prices are worse. Especially the model railroad crossing for $2,495... I can buy a full scale signal for less than that. :Grin:

This is also a bad one. I know it's Wabco, but $210 is too much for a bell without it's insides... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Wabco-R ... Sw-K9ZEhxm
