Sometime ago in the bottom of a junk box I got parts of a Gong Bell company Fire Pole. Once I found out what it was I watched Ebay and bought parts of a second one. I never did find enough parts to replace everything that was missing but I got enough to put together the two items pictured. The tall one originally used a battery to power the light. I rewired it so I can run it off my transformer. The top on both were cut from wood as I could not find original pieces without buying another complete one for about $75.00, The shorter one, which still stands about 8" tall is made from left over parts. I'll probably keep the shorter one since it goes well with Standard Gauge and see if I can sell the taller one.
picked up one of these a few years back but never did anything with it, does the bell inside the fire box still ring?
