For more than a year, I’ve been drooling over a particular pinball backglass I’d seen in a private collection. I finally managed to pick up the machine and am pretty excited. This is another daunting project: A pre-flipper, pre-WWII vintage woodrail pinball game from Genco. “Big Town” was produced in 1940, and as you can see from the backglass, it’s got a beautiful vintage art-deco look. To me a perfect example of how glorious pinball art can be.
Wow, great game! if you need any parts, email me,
WAS WONDERING IF YOU BY CHANCE HAVE A SCHEMATIC FOR YOUR GENCO BIG TOWN. I’M WORKING ON ONE RIGHT NOW AND NEED A SCHEMATIC. CAN’T GET IT TO RESET FOR GAME PLAY. THANKS GLENN
I wish I did. If you can find one, let me know and I’ll do the same.
i have a working 1940 genco big town flipperless pinball i got from my father he bought at age 10 does it have value
I am not sure about the value. There’s not a huge market for those old games, but that one really is a beauty. You should at least report the serial number to IPSND.NET – there are only a few known instances of that game in existence. I would like to see pictures of yours and compare to mine as well.
