Runaway Coaster

Postby AndrewEdwards » 08 Apr 2003, 10:48

Does anyone have any solid information on the Runaway. I over the last year have been unable to get any guaranteed facts on it. Its ages has been mentioned from 1920 - 1927, i cannot find out who manufactured the rides, and can find little information as to how it ended up in a field in Europe. I know it was used at travelling fairs for many years, but would love any help as to its past.... Im hoping it will be kept in the UK so finding it yet another home may be difficult but fingers crossed. Any info either post or send through my site
