They're called Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters now and they sort of have a website.

PTC, a LONG time ago, was involved in design and construction, and employed the likes of Herb Schmeck, John Miller, John Allen, Vernon Keenan, etc.  Obviously, this was THE coaster-building company of the day.  Now, Tom Rebbie, President of PTC, concentrates their business mainly on building trains (and they are GOOD trains), but I believe they still do some work re-tracking/re-profiling.  I don't THINK they build or design new coasters anymore, but I could be wrong...

I think that CCI give the options of PTC trains or the G trains. They probably also make parts for PTC and non PTC trains.
