Re: Bryans Grand National

Oh yes! I'm forgetting about Tom Boland conversions of what are now sometimes rare machines. One of my favourites was the Greyhound version of the Caille Commercial; I've only just found out that it was a conversion. I've just spotted the give-away on the Bryan's Grand National re-vamp:- 24d! Nobody...

Re: Someone's not a collector ?

Perhaps a separate forum for bitching and backbiting might be in order.
Locked, of course, in case new enthusiasts are put-off.

Re: Someone's not a collector ?

I'm glad I didn't see all this before I joined.

Re: Aristocrat Carousel top glass

Aristocrats in general are mechanically good. I have a pair of Sheerlines on 6d., and I can't fault the engineering. It's definitely personal.

They are either the last of the mechanical bandits, or the first of the Electros, depending on what you are interested in. (Typically, I'm involved with both!). A sort of Muscovy Duck of the gaming world; sometimes more ...
