What Coaster Is This?

Does anyone have any idea which coaster this is? I'm interested in recreating it and I have no info on it.

Have Fun

That looks familiar... it looks like the Dayton Wildcat.

I recreated the Dayton (Lakeside Park) Wildcat a while ago and it was a twister instead of an out and back like the coaster in the picture.

Hmmmm.... I'm not sure then. That was my only guess.

Paul, that is a 1927 photo of the Bullet coaster at Island Park in Portsmouth, RI. It was the 2nd largest coaster in New England when it opened in 1926. It was destroyed by a severe gale in 1928 but rebuilt until it was lost by the infamous hurricane of 1938 that destroyed much of the New England coast including at least 6 wooden coasters.
