      Railroad bells

      I have had a bell passed down to me. The bell is solid brass, weighs 60 lbs and has the words EMD – and the # 8005146

      I would like to use the piece but need a yoke and cradle. Anyone know whom I may contact?

      The bell is 14″ high and 12″ in diameter?

      EMD stands for Electro Motive Division which was the division of General Motors that produced huge numbers of diesel locomotives. The bell was probably mounted from the top and never had a yoke or cradle and it used a pnuematic bell ringer that just moved the clapper. So you are sort of on your own in making something that will work.
