Closeups of the other cantilever with a GS Type 2 e-bell.
The pedestrian gates have WCH L.E.D. gate lights!

 

It's odd that the pedestrian gates have L.E.D. lights. The main gates have 4" incandescent lights.

 

There was a mechanical bell that used to exist on the cantilever seen in pictures 1-2. But one winter day, the bell was ringing, and pieces of the gong would fall off! Needless to say that it didn't have much life left after that!
