That is very cool. Your pictures are kind of fuzzy and and so you should focus when your using your camera. Try to get more close up shots because there is some empty space.

Cool! I have those brochures except for the Flying coaster one. Your site has some really interesting stuff on it. I especially enjoyed the Oblivion & Rock N' Rollercoaster blueprints :)

How could a person such as myself get ahold of some B&M brochures? Ever since their website closed ive looked into finding more information about them and this looks like a good way!

You need intelligence to find their email address. And its not available publicly so the mass stupidity wouldn't bug them. Sorry.

I'd love to get some information from B&M, I have an information pack thing from CCI already. It would be helpful if you could tell us what you did to get information from the company.

Well, just like SFNE Freak said, you can't just pull these things out of the air. You have to do one of many things:

1. Go to IAAPA in November

2. Work with a company that do design consulting on amusement parks, theme parks, etc.

3. Know people who can get you the stuff (I won't do that)

4. Just know there email addresses, and if they are nice enough, they might send you some information. (No, I will not pass out email addresses)

And also, remember, that pestering them over and over will not help, just agrivate them. They are a company, just like any other company, and they don't want people bugging them all the time.

B&M never had a website.

For example: This is about 1/3 of all the stuff I have from the companies. This didn't just come from going to IAAPA, but about half of it did.

Hopefully this stupid link will work for a while, and not crash when alot of people look at it. But if it does, I will just see if a site can poste it.

Ah, good ol' B&M brochures. I got some a while ago and it was great. Both Walter and Claude signed the brochures. Yipee! They're great, aren't they? Too bad they didn't give me the flyer one. :(

You could always find their mailing address and write a letter to them.

Revolutionary, I know.

Is that a Q-bot in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

Yah, I agree GP....amazing what a hand written letter (or at least hand signed letter) will get you....even now!

The snobbery in this thread (if I am reading it right) amazes me...it could have been a bit more nicely stated that it might take come conections to get this information....rather than they "I got it, but you won't be able to" garbage in this thread.

But, hey, that's just me.

Thanks for sharing laurence!

not really snobbery, just people not giving things away freely which they have worked hard to get; ie they feel you should do it yourself

Snobbery? No.

Trying to keep B&M from getting e-mails from tons of kids asking for brochures? Yes.
