Happy New Year Damien!

I was dabbling a bit with restoring some old photos and was wondering if I could your opinion?  Here is a before and after of a roller coaster.  

Were you planning on doing any classes on photo restoration?  If so, I would definitely be interested.

So, here it is on top of the original photo with no other enhancements done on it.  Should I have converted it to Black & White first and then run the filter?

I guess so.  It converted it to some weird pattern thing with colors but I went to the red channel and used a black brush on the stars that they say aren't suppose to be there and then when I was done I clicked on the IFFT filter to get it back to what you see above.  I don't really like it.  The texture that was on the photo is the real texture of the original photo.  I'm not sure if I really want to get rid of it since it's actually part of the photo.  Plus it made the photo darker.  Do you know what I mean?  I was asking if you thought the adjustments I made so far looked okay.  

So, ignoring the texture in the photo, is there anything else I could do to the photo?  Any advice?
