^ Well I looked and looked and then FINALLY found the answer for you - from an old TR of mine on Playland, LOL! The 2009 visit.
Back then, the ACE plaque was there right at the queue entrance. Now it's not there any more, (actually, it might be interesting to find out where it went...) but the writing on the last three lines of that big paragraph, tell you that the designer/builder of the coaster also built the three trains, as well.
