Facts:For the 1957 season the original trains (manufacturer unknown) were replaced by new stainless steel trains built by the National Amusement Device Company.  The following June a fire damaged the station and it is assumed these new trains perished in the fire as pictures taken after 1960 show PTC built trains.
History:The 1943 closure was caused to staffing problems at the park resulting in the park not being open that year.  The 1946 closure was due to a fire that destroyed the station and trains.
