I don't know what kind it was. There were no cars to be seen and I wouldn't be able to tell them apart anyway. The only thing I noticed that may help identify it is that the wheels had tread instead of being treadless like the one at Kennywood. This one also had springs under where the cars went versus air bags like on Kennywoods.
From the article, it seems the only ground sold was the parcel the Steam Association was already using for their events (the "alternate" entrance). The park and speedway were still retained, but I don't know if those are on separate lots or not.
I doubt the Steam people would be operating the park. Now whether the park owners would open it for "big" events on the Steamers side would be up to them. So the owners just got a couple mil, but they're not the least bit interested in running the park. And probably not interested in re-investing the proceeds from the land sale into the park. Meanwhile places like CLP would kill for that kind of money.
