Bob: I was often perplexed observing a large locomotive entering a passenger terminal, or moving over a crossing at grade with bell ringing, but not tumbling.I then learned modern ones were air pulsed. Are you able to explain how the air ringer operated??? Piston ? How did it repeat ? Thanks Vic

At the present, I don't know. Some had piston that pushed the ringer then the weight brought it back to center and some had double action. Should be able to answer your question when I tear into it.
