Proud owner of a Safetran 3rd Gen M-Bell, a GS Type 2 bell, a dead GS type 1 bell, a WRRS M-bell, and a US&S H-2 searchlight signal.
Why does everyone copy my signature?

OG signal collection signature, I think. :LOL2:

That bell replaced a WCH E-Bell, which had lost the cap on it, this had lead rainwater to build up inside the bell and caused the bell to die IMO. ... 312!8i6656
still rather interesting that they replaced it with a safetran type-one and not a gs e-bell or even another wch electronic bell.
As of 2019, the Safetran Type 1 has now been replaced with a General Signals Type 3 Electronic Bell., ... 384!8i8192

I have known these good installs for awhile, time to show you them (if you haven't seen them yet lol).

First off, Lakeview Parkway in Vernon Hills, IL... this line is pretty dead, but this crossing has 4 HYBRID BELLS! ... 92!5m1!1e1

Second, we are gonna head up to Wisconsin, in Silver Lake.
There are 4 crossings with Safetran Type 1's.

The first, County Route F: (Says Salem in the town name but it's very much near Silver Lake) ... 92!5m1!1e1

Then County Route B: ... 92!5m1!1e1

Park Street: ... 56!5m1!1e1

And finally, Lake Street: ... 56!5m1!1e1
