I have been trying to figure out how to apply for the rail road and all I can find is museum stuff. Is there another web site or some thing I can go to?

CPRR Bell - real or fake?


I recently purchased a CPRR bell and I can't seem to find any information about it anywhere. All I have found out is that it was a horse drawn bell. Where can I gather more information on this and is their any way to determine if the bell is real or fake?
