I love these rides. these three are my daughter and granddaughter. Hard to tell them apart at that age. My granddaughter though the picture of her mother was her.

I love the Space Patrol Scout Ship! I may take a look to see it in person as Vintage Coin-Op Restorations is not far from where I live in the Chicago area. Ozzie, is this the restorer that's working on a couple of your projects? The Space Train is currently available on eBay:

A few miles from me is the Blackpool Rocket Ride, or "Flyers". About 115 years old and still going strong. I went on it as a child. Sorry, Oz, they have historical listed status, so you can't have one. The owners have wanted to redevelop (destroy) them for decades, but the law won't let them. Their loss, our gain.
