Default Rail Road Track Crossing Bell

I found this at the “FLEA” market weeks ago, and after several weeks of trying to get his price , he finally accepted my offer. He said take it away because I don’t want to continue to deal with the same people asking a million questions over and over like: does it work, what voltage does it take, it looks rusty, the wires don’t look to good, can I bring it back if it doesn’t work, etc… . I got it home, fussed with it a bit, cleaned the points, oiled the mechanism, stood it upright, gave it 12 volts DC and the rest is history per the video . Sounds good, and sure helps me have "FUN", even in NJ on the way through .

Nice!! Now you need a genuine Wig Wag!

It's a crime that these have been replaced with those lame electronic ones that go nam nam nam nam....
