AFter reading the vekoma cheap thread i remembered that I met a B&M engineer at Dorney about 3 months after the debut of talon. He was dress in B&M clothes and was conbstantly riding all over the train without waiting. I talked to him for a couple minutes and he said he worked on Wildfire and Alpie. He said that Walter and Claude were extremely pleased with Talon and they would try to use some of Talon's great pacing in future designs. I thought this was pretty cool. Who have you met at parks?

I had the good fortune to ride Hersheypark's Comet with the late John Allen in 1977. He had been hired to assess the condition of it and present recommendations to rebuild it. I will never forget that day!
