Default GT Cars

One of my favorite memories is working the GT Cars in the morning and hearing the train blow the whistle because nobody was covering the tracks! We would have two people run to the locations to pull the chains across while the guys in the engine made fun of us. Also, good memory of ANYONE falling on their rearends because we were hopping on the cars wearing BOOTS of all things!!! I can still see Nancy Vacanti wiping out in front of the q-line!

Default I got so many stories....

of running the RR train in the 70's. I am especially thankful to all those that made those years so fun, especially the late Charlie Patton. Hell. I have stories about damn near every ride in that park and the parking lot. When I have time I will post my book.

And weren't those boots the absolute WORST!? I dunno, maybe the cheezy straw hats that went with them were worse still.

I also remember the greasers had a neat trick at GT cards - if they were good, they could flick that motor starter string just right and tie it in a knot one-handed!

I can't speak to the year in this picture, but I know the girls. The one on the left is Shannon Scott, who went on to Guest Relations. On the right is Donna (Cruse) Whittington; this may be the crew picture of the year that she was Happy Motoring foreman.
