Just found another early image of the Transatlantic.

That’s a nice find and looks more like mine with no base.

And thinking back, I remember thinking they had painted it to look like a coke can with that white swirl across the middle. I’m going to have to go digging and see if I took photos half way through the stripping of the paint

Well would you look at that? Thank you Mr penny machines, I’m guessing mine's a Transatlantic.

That's cool. Now I think you need to reinstate those groovy graphics! You even have a colour reference from your original pictures.
The B/W image was the one I half remembered at the start of this thread - from an old negative taken by the Bollands. I like the top sign with the very simple linear London to New York 'map'.

Another image found on the hard-drive - very nice cartoon graphics, less naïve, but not the original.

For me it's a great shame the joystick is so vulnerable to kids slamming the playfield about (when not playing) on these, which make them less desirable to operate than safer alternatives.

Nice to see the different playfield art. Sadly I still haven't added the stripes or the header.
