      I have a bell from a steam locomotive. I believe it was removed in the late ’40’s.

      The bell is siezed in the yoke and will not swing. Same for the clapper.

      Can this be restored? Who, where?

      The yoke and the clapper are cast steel and are probably seized by rust. You might try a light penetrating oil or WD-40 silicone oil to try and loosen the rust and gently force the rotation. Once the bell moves, you would need to keep it lubricated.
