Woodrails are an acquired taste. There was a time when I wouldn't look twice at one. Now, I have several in my collection. I just got done playing a couple of games on my Gottlieb '57 "Royal Flush". It's a very attractive game, and the objective is more difficult to achieve than it may first appear. The gameplay is lively, but the ball times are relatively short compared to what you might be used to. I would say this game is a decent player; not the best and certainly not the worst. There are many good playing woodrails out there, and as was mentioned by someone above, the prices on them seem to be coming down. The more desireable titles are still up there though. I was fortunate to find this "Royal Flush" in someone's garage. The guy was not a pinball guy, and he told me he pulled it out of a house the previous day. It needed a bit of work, but was in generally good condition, and it came out nice. Don't listen to people who'll tell you woodrails play slow. When they are properly shopped, cleaned and waxed, they play plenty fast.
