Erie County Fair runs thru Sunday August 18. One of the greatest midways there in many years.
Strates set a record gross there last Saturday.

Nice pictures, thanks for posting. Nice to see those AH rides (helicopters/Sky Fighter) on the lot.

Does Strates still have his Red Baron?

There are a few other booked in pieces.
The Zyklon cranes and van load go on the train but the track & jackstands usually go over the road.

That was still a helicopter when I joined.

I think Robin Turner either bought it or partnered with Strates on it when they bought the new tubs.

Wonder what happened to Robin, I think he managed a pier for a while then got on a fair board somewhere. He was a good guy.

Are those track and jackstand loads to high for the train (clearance wise)?

I’m guessing they need the loads to get the base laid out

of perhaps the trailer are too wide. I've heard that 8'6" trailer will rub on the sides of the cars.

Good point. Maybe I missed this before, but did Strates own a Toboggan, I know I have seen pictures of his midway back then and I saw one in a few pictures, but of course that could have been booked.

that Kings Circus perhaps belongs to Tim at Carol Stream, unless this is a different one.

I heard Mr Strates say in an interview that I saw online how some of the newer rides must travel by road because they are either too wide or too high to put on the train.
