GCII makes the front page of the local paper!

Sunday, January 22, 2006 5:30 PM
Last week The News Item did a story on the company. Basicly just an around the area type article. We got about a page and a half of the paper. Sereral color photos and a few black and whites on the inside. Unfortunately they didn't post the article online but there is a pic of the front page! You can see the colors of the trains for Thunderbird.

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar Wow, those trains look REALLY retro now with that color scheme. Nice. :)

Mamoosh's avatar OK...color me clueless. I didn't see any pics of Thunderbird's train in any of those links. What am I doing wrong?

Aww,you beat me to it. The same article was on the front page of our local paper (Pottsville Republican) this morning. The picture of the Ozark Wildcat model was pretty sharp too.

Mamoosh, I think the articles have "refreshed" since coasterpunk posted the original link.


If you click on that link, and scroll down a bit you can see the train along with a few other photos from the article.

Our paper featured the picture of the train on the banked curve of Thunderhead on the front page, the picture of Chris Gray, and a picture of the Ozark model I didn't see in the link Top Gun provided. Our picture of the model was better, but then again it didn't include coasterpunk (sorry, dude, you win some, you lose some).

Congrats CPunk. Some nice photos in there. How are the KRumbler trains coming along?

rollergator's avatar Congratulations guys...nice to see some local appreciation for your (incredible) efforts... :)

Can we get Discovery Channel to host "Monster Coaster Garage" down in *Dan's dungeon*? LOL! :)

Hoping to get a lap or two with some of the GCII staff at the Inaugural Rumble Event...maybe I can *Moosh* Dan to make up for some of the vicious hits I took on Knoebels bumper cars... ;)

The Rumbler train has been finished since November. Thunderbirds's trains are just about finished, just putting the finishing touches on them now.

I can't wait to get these trains rolling!
