I recently acquired a 17″ brass steam engine bell for Cheyenne. I’m trying to identify the bell. Can you put me touch with a person who can help me? I have more pictures. The bell is 17″. The bell weighs 126#. The clapper is pneumatic. The bell came from Cheyenne where the UP dismantled old steam engines. Because of its size, I suspect this bell came from a very large UP steam engine take out of service in the 1950’s. I would appreciate any information that will help identify this bell’s origin and history.
If you can help, please post a response.
