It last operated seemed like 1980...
It sat till everything was auctioned off....
I watched 'em lay the huge skyride tower down and cut it up.....bummer....
The loco. out front by the rd. was cut up but the tender survived...last seen it in Ga.....
I remember going to it when it 1st opened in the early '60's.A youngster horse playing w/another friend fell out of the skyride when door came open and fell to his death....12yr. old if remember right...the friend was in shock when it got to the rear station.......

One of the steam engines and passenger cars went to Jefferson tx. and still operate there part of the year. I just bought 2 of the bench seats with the cast iron 6 gun logos on each end. They were in the passenger cars. Can't wait to get them here to clean them up. I will post pictures later.
