PLENTY OF ROOM FOR WHEELS TO GET BETWEEN BOLT PLATES.
Think of it this way. The space between those plates is no less than the width of the steel that runs along the top of traditional wood coaster track. I really don't get how this is so confusing for everyone. Maybe it's just that pictures can't do it justice but take it from those of us who have actually seen it in person, IF the plates stay there is room for the wheels.
I don't know the width of the wheels, but I can imagine them being be thinner than the space between the bolts, but how the wheels stay centered through a turn as shown in Exhibit A?
Also, I don't doubt the width between the bolts at least the same as the top of a traditional wooden coaster track, but on a traditinal coaster track isn't there a little tolerance for the the edge of the wheel to hang over the edge of the track just a little maybe an 1/8 of an inch here, but if any part of the wheel hits a bolt you start chunking those wheels.
But hey I'll wait to see how this all plays out, I don't think any of us can know for certain at this point.
I'll wait to see Exhibit B, a picture of the train and wheels going through the area where the bolts are currently located.
