I just visited SFOG yesterday. Here are a few pics. Seems as if some tracking has been removed. Still hoping for RMC on the (former) Cyclone!

The final teaser has just been released. It looks like they may be putting the emphasis on JLBFM because it was a "dark" video with the occasional scene of the previous trailer. They could be totally throwing us off because I know that it's an RMC coming especially since only track has come off and they are lowering some supports for a pre lift section. The ride wouldn't have track removed from the coaster if it was getting torn down. The areas I noticed the track off were the pre section before the lifthill, the station, and the turnaround before the last section and the turn around that led into the crazy 4th drop. And correct me if I'm wrong that they were also removing track from the brake run?

This is 100% RMC. They are carefully removing track and that is all you need to confirm it.

I completely agree. Recent wooden roller coaster torn down like Thunder Road, Ozark Wildcat, and Rolling Thunder never had any track removed prior to being torn down.

They're either just using that other truck to throw us off or because RMC doesn't have enough trucks since they have too many projects already this year. Eventually we'll probably see one pop up.

It could be that it's just cheaper to rent a Crain then send one all the way from Idaho.

Not only that, they have 7 projects this year and they may not have enough trucks to work at all 7 projects. I think that we may see one eventually though once they get done with mean streak or hurler or something.

I think that as a construction company, RMC will likely be competent enough to acquire the necessary equipment to construct all the things they have contracts for.

Or they could be removing a few pieces of track for the rollercoaster Museum like they did with the wooden coaster from astroworld.

lol I thought u were joking for some reason. Strongly doubt that because they took quite a bit more track off then that. All the track in the station, brake run, final turn, some of the turnarounds, and some airtime hills were gone.
