Walt Disney's No. 173 Brass Bell

This one-eighth scale solid brass bell was cast from patterns based on the original plans of Central Pacific Railroad engine No. 173, which was built in 1872 at Sacramento, California. It was the first steam locomotive entirely constructed in California.

Walt Disney selected this locomotive as the prototype for the Lilly Belle steam engine featured on his private miniature Carolwood Pacific Railroad. The livery on the tender contains the designation CP 173 in honor of its provenience. This one-eighth scale railroad operated from 1950 to 1953 at the Disney estate in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles. The Carolwood railroad consist has been fully restored by volunteers of The Carolwood Society and is on permanent display at The Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco.

The bell and its solid maple base were handcrafted in the United States of America exclusively for The Carolwood Society. Global production is limited to 173 units. We are clearing out the last remaining inventory at a 50% discount from the original price of $260 for $130 plus $10 shipping.
