Leslie s5t with 277 bell.

Yes I know, I'm making something that isn't about the s5a for once. :shock: I'm just curious if a railroad owned a s5t with a 277 bell replacing the 25 bell. I know they were made before.

Years ago, both Ron Chamberlain and I got some cut Leslie bells, the #25 and #31's, probably from Elwood, to make a 277and 330, those 2 bells total change what the Leslie 5 chime sounds like.
Incredible, is all I can say.
I think Ron had his with all Bronze Power Chamber for the extra touch.
One of, if not. The best sounding horn, period. IMO.
