Default Favorite bit of trivia/fun fact/obscure knowledge?

Howdy All,

What is your favorite/most obscure bit of trivia/fun fact about the Six Flags RR?

One of my fav's is:

The building where the Gen. Sam was built (The Dickson Manufacturing Co.) still stands in Scranton, Pennyslvania, and has been repurposed as a Paper Warehouse for the Penn Paper Co. You might have recognized this building from the opening credits of the popular sitcom "The Office"

Wow, Chaz! I'm thinking with the first post you win the "Most Obscure Reference" prize! That's interesting!

Here's a try for obscure trivia.

The maiden name of the original owner's wife was Fornier.

A son of Madame Patout's joined the Gold Rush of 1849 by boat, but got very sick and weak. He returned from San Francisco overland and vanished near Amarillo, Tx.

Both locomotive bells at sfot are original from the plantation, but they were apparently swapped around with the others before leaving.
