Re: Transatlantic on eBay

I bought this to use in my old penny arcade at the Rye Heritage Centre. The seller tried to boost the price misleadingly by saying another was going for over £2000 (with no link).

Re: Charlie and Mabel in the Park

Thanks, nice to be on board the forum, very interesting, did not know my machines were being discussed.
To clear up a point in this discussion, I added the 'Working Model' metal plate to Smokey Joe, so these models never had one
