Hi George, Do you stil have any cabs? i would love a space harrier cab and a house of the dead 2. i had three but had no space for them in the move so i had to see them go. Welcome to the forum. And a happy new year to you also.

That sounds amazing. I only have a few memories of getting to go into a full arcade with a full set of cabinets however they were second rate games and mostly 2p machines. I have played on an original Space Harrier, it was a sit down cabinet i loved it so much. I also got the chance to play an original Asteriods at Play Expo and that was so vivid and crisp i was glued to it. The bullets were bright white with a blue flare. I also want an indoor cabinet again but a home made priject for me.

Hey George! I'm from your neck of the woods too, more or less. North end of Co Durham. Lots of happy memories of gaming in and around Newcastle and the coastal arcades during the 70s and 80s. Welcome!
