NAD Roller Coaster Trains Census Results So Far

NAD trains are wonderful and classic. They have a different feel to them than the standard PTC three bencher, yet they still have that same nostalgic feel. Sadly, the NAD trains have fallen into near extinction after they once were on coasters all over the country and the world. So far we have compiled this list of remaining NAD trains

In operation: (Feel free to make corrections)
1) Thunderbolt - Kennywood - 3
2) Blue Streak - Conneaut Lake - 1 remaining after the Beach Club fire burnt the other remaining NAD Train
3) Valleyfair - High Roller 1 train
4) Camden Park, West Virginia - Big Dipper 1 train (Century Flyer)
5) Camden Park - Lil Dipper 1 train (Junior Train)

6) Rye Playland, Kiddie Coaster, 1 (Junior Century Flyer train)
7) Montana Rusa, 2 Trains, Mexico

We are hoping to find about more, please help us out! The main discussion page is here or you can post what you know on this post. Any corrections on this information would be appreciated and any possible additional whereabouts of NAD trains. They are quickly going towards extinction and we want to know where all of the trains are at.
