Steam Bell - DampfGlock

I'm posting on behalf of a friend of mine in France. Some while ago, he downloaded the drawings for a 'steam bell' or 'dampfglock' from the Society website, but is now missing one of the pages, and so he can't finish the construction. I have searched the site for the drawings, but can't find them. Anybody able to point me in the right direction, please? Amicalement - Martin (4560).

The nearest I can find is this article that has some details on making a 4 tone chime whistle:

STEAM WHISTLES FOR MINIATURE LOCOMOTIVES. Issue 91, page 22

and

WHEEZELESS WHISTLES. Issue 133, page 32.

That is assuming that a dampfglock is a chime whistle rather than a steam powered bell (novel idea).

Hello Richard - it is actually a steam-operated bell - the clapper is driven by some sort of 'flip-flop' valve that trips the hammer, and sounds the bell. Unfortunately, that's the bits that's missing!

But thanks, George - I'll search the 'Gartenbahnen' site and see if that produces the missing page.

Mes sentiments distingués to you both

Martin
