Does anyone know where the bell is situated on the prototype? I'm beginning to detail and revise my RS-3.

Thanks,
Matt

Varied greatly from RR to RR. Most of the time they were mounted to the frame either near the steps as mentioned or near the fuel tank area. Some RRs even mounted them steam engine style from a bracket on the front of the long hood.

The Northern Pacific (among others) mounted an actual steam locomotive bell on top of the hood.
