Default Re: GQ Memories...

I was there in '72 and swept up mainly in the boomtown area (first it was the Southern Section). LOL, I so remember having to get down in the tracks of the Run Away Mine Train and get up cigarette butts and pink thing sticks before the operator let the train go. I was always worried he or she might accidentally hit the go switch! I also would hop on the Carousel to sweep up while it was going. Back then, that carousel had a real mechanical pipe organ and drum set...I just loved the sound! On the way home, I could literally hear those tunes ringing in my ears!
