I am also sure most all people know that one of the M-bells was replaced with a WCH E-bell a few years ago. Doing some random searching I found this crossing on the former EJ&E Western sub now CN Leithton Sub. 4 signals, each equipped with a Safetran Hybrid bell. Granted the hybrids are technically E-bells, they sound like an M-bell to me, so good enough for me to call them an M-bell. With CN replacing nearly all crossing signals on the former EJ&E main lines I can foresee if it hasn't already happened yet that either all bells will be replaced with Safetran T-III E-bells or remove two bells and replace the other two with Safetran T-III's.

Reason is, those bells have a computer chip in them that allows the recording device to sense the bell is working without running extra wires or requiring an external bell sensing device.
