^^ Lol Tom. Sorry about your misfortune at SFOG. You know I never even really realized the train was not in the photograph until you pointed it out. I was eventually able to ride it, but it was down more often than not on most of my visits too. I wonder if it's in the boneyard there now.

As much as I love the red, white & blue color scheme of the original trains, I also liked this second color scheme of the trains. They had 3 variations: the lead car came in red (shown in the postcard above) they also had green and blue

^^Schwarzkopf rides before they get their trains neutered with horrific shoulder restraints make me smile. Goes back to a time when common sense and personal responsibility actually meant something.

1971-1978? I had no idea it was there for such a short time. I wish I had gotten the chance to ride the Big Bend :(

^Still miss walking by OE while walking into the park. Why did I have to finally grow a pair and start riding coasters the year AFTER they took OE out.

*still kicking self for not riding Zambezi Zinger when I went in '96*
