Brian, I believe there was just the one Crew Compartment Trainer at JSC. I was fortunate to get to crawl around in it and several other full size mockups two years ago. A friend of mine worked at JSC as a Mission Controller and gave me the grand tour.

Crew Compartment trainer - Couldn't spend much time in there, best of the three pictures my friend was able to take.






Another shot towards the back of the CCT - the window would be looking out at the payload bay.






Full size launch configuration Crew Trainer






Payload Bay Simulation Trainer






Stationary Orbiter Simulator






Front end of the Payload Bay Trainer






ISS Mockup






Exterior of the mockup






The new Lunar rovers that will sadly never leave Earth.






I got to go in those too.






The famed Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory






Oh and one more thing...I moonlight as Space Shuttle Flight Director. And Apollo Flight Director.

Wow Andrew, thanks for that series. That must have been amazing. I once had tickets for a Shuttle launch that got scrubbed, and I traded them in for a Cape Canaveral Then and Now tour, which for me was pretty awe-inspiring in and of itself. I can't imagine what your access must have been like - I wouldn't have been able to sleep for days in advance.

OK, based on the photos Glenn, Jay, Jeff, Jan-Arie and the rest of you guys are showing, I'm taking a sabbatical to go figure out which end of the camera to point at airplanes! Hope this post doesn't show up at TOP, if so, Glenn, would you cover for me?!

Andrew,
Grand tour indeed, nice shots! I was a bit on the young side when I went as the shot shows hehe. Have not been to the NBL yet, but that vertical crew cabin rings a childhood bell as being the one I was in. Times have changed and only gotten better with me and the shuttles.

Andrew, I use to work in those two buildings where you were sitting at the consoles (Buildings 30/30S). I was the Loral/Lockheed Quality Engineer for hardware development. Something to make Steve (Go4Long) proud is that the blue consoles you are sitting at in the Gold Flight Control Room (FCR) were manufactured in Calgary by Evans Consoles. A very good company with an outstanding product, in fact I would say they share Jim's values for meeting customer expectations. (Understand, expectations are not the same as requirements, it's more difficult.) They also provided the consoles for the Canadian Space Agency control room in Montreal (another of my projects). Of course most of my time was spent in the many back rooms and floors surrounding the control rooms, really boring stuff to look at, and some really cold rooms.

Interesting note about the consoles. Underneath each console is 40' of cable for each interface for every piece of hardware inside each cabinet. (Consider there are 3 unix workstations, 2 FDDI comm stations, etc., that's a lot of hardware!) We did not spec that in our drawings, so when I saw the NASA on-site contractor rolling up the extra cable and lay it under the floor on the cable tray, I ask him "why?". He said they had to do that in case the Flight Director or other operation manager wanted to move their console. I told him the center was designed with a distributed architecture, so all they would have to do is to move to the console of their choice and log in. Of course he answered, "I do what I am told". Your gov't dollars wisely spent. Of course, the building 30 lobby has a silver hammer award from Al Gore for saving the Gov't money! Go figure.
