First came the Harpurs at Six Flags Over Georgia. Now, it looks like Port Aventura has butchered up at least one of their two (built by Severn-Lamb to Harpur's design) into a MacGyver dismal. Anyone know more?

A darn shame.

This is the first that I've heard of it. I thought that Severn-Lamb makes steam outline versions of their steam locomotives so it's possible that Port Adventura's locomotives were converted by their original makers. Not that that makes it any better but at least it's not the home brew butcher job that Six Flags Over Georgia did.

I sure hope that the Walt Disney Company doesn't know about any of this. :evil:
