        I am doing a project on coaster designs, concentrating on the
materials used for the track and how this has enabled the coaster
design to evolve. I am looking for information on all kinds of coasters.
Wooden coasters, steel coasters and other types of coaster like the
Avalanche at Blackpool.
        What I am after is the address of companies that design and make
roller coasters. Also if anybody has any information on the background or
future of coasters, ie first coaster, first wooden coaster, first steel
coaster, new material used, new directions etc, I would be very grateful to
hear from you. Please use the e-mail address at the top or bottom. They
should be the same. :-)

        All contributions will be gratefully recieved.
        Thank you in advance.

You really need to get a copy of "The Incredible Scream Machine" by Robert
Cartmell,  published by  Amu***t Park Books, Inc., Fairwiew, Ohio 44126.
I think the book is still available through ACE for about $40.00.

The reference is correct but this book is NOT AVAILABLE FROM ACE. You can
order it and just about any other book that is still in print (and some
that are not still in print) from:

Nancy Stillwagon/Gunther Hall Ltd.
P.O.Box 140A
Alton Bay, N.H.03810
(603) 875-2248

And look for her special flyer to appear in the next ACE mailing.

Happy Reading (if not riding),
Tom Maglione

Tom, I'm sorry about the reference to ACE as a supplier.  I bought my copy
at the  convention, last year in Kansas City.      ACERGUY
