New Brooklyn to New York via Brooklyn Bridge is the first train

Rube and Mandy at Coney Island shows how people enjoyed themselves
during the times when the entertainment at Coney Island was still
on the wild side.
Men and women ride on wooden horses, which are running on tracks.
The sliding is a sensation and all the people are falling on top
of each other. Rube und Mandy are a comical pair that is there to
entertain the visitors. They ride cows, fight over the Test Your
Strength game, and eat hot dogs.
