A grey cylindrical Station Bell made by Bing for use with model railways.

Construction

The main body of the bell is a grey-painted upright cylinder, topped by a stacked pair of bells, , and in turn topped by a black-painted flattedned conical "roof with a silver-coloured tip. The flared base of the bell is dark red, and the pieces has a winding handle on one side and a circular indicator panel divided into red and white halves protruding from its right.

As with much of Bing's range, the company made variations on the piece in different sizes.
