History and use
This locomotive bell came from one of the steam locomotives supplied to Queensland Railways by the Baldwin Locomotive Works, Philedelphia, USA in 1882 - 1885. Locomotives supplied by Baldwin came with a locomotive bell as was standard practice in the United States. They were not standard in Queensland however and were soon removed when in service on Queensland Railways.
