I've found three crossings on Google Street View on the LIRR with General Signals e-bells.
R.I.P. HMCR 8933; 1951-2013. Hasn't been moved since it was put next to Huntsville High School in 2015.

Send me or any other admin a PM/e-mail if you want to submit crossing photos to the site!

Anyway.
I don't see a difference between newer or older, i like both.

I like both, although I do prefer older signals. I actually quite like crossings with a mixture of old and new equipment, but it's nice to have variety.

Generally, that's the way I feel. Though there are some tasteful new installs, there are also junky-looking ones.
