Hello George,

I shall have to look for this one as I know of no bell on the main post 
office, which is located just around the corner from the Holy Rosary 

There are many many ex-locomotive steel bells in Canada, especially in 
Western Canada.  They have a very squashed profile, i.e. with a very 
short waste.  Fortunately my locomotive bell is a brass one cast by the 
CPR for a Royal Hudson Locomotive - but with no inscription on it.  It 
came complete with its yoke and lever.  It weighs 200 lbs approx.

Meanwhile, back to work.

Best wishes
