David, it was the Pike that had the train, it ran around the bottom of the screen, Earl Clancy managed that place before he went to the Shipyard, he mentioned it had the train years ago, the pike’s final season was 1969, in the summer of 1970 a few of us from the shipyard had to dismantle it and remove all the sound and projection equipment, we moved the equipment to both the Shipyard and the seekonk where it was stored.I believe the reason for the closing of both the rt44 and the pike was due to a new freeway being built, hope this helps, Ken- Arizona

To Elevatortribe, The Iron Buttterfy Concert atthe Shipyard never happened, it was cancelled at the last minute, I recall it was scheduled in May of 1971 I left R I in June of 1971, maybe the concert was rescheduled? I recall us all getting ready for it, D J Mike Sands from WICE Radio was going to host it, hope this bit of info helps Ken

Yes Dchad this is Ken, I’m still here but for some reason your Cox email kept bouncing, no more pictures of the Shipyard, I did locate the Manager Earl Clancy who I worked for back in the late 60’s he has no pictures of the Drive-in, wish I could find a picture of the screen, email me, Ken
