^ Its not a straight section of track. It is more of a banked slight turn. Its just an illusion in those pictures.

It looks like they still need to install the stairs for the MCBR?

^Yes, but probably not where you are looking, as evidenced by Behemoth. I believe those stairs that lead to nothing are for easier access for maintenance guys, as they can just drive a cherry picker up and walk just a couple steps instead of marching the whole way up.

Does anyone know for sure to confirm/correct that?

From Bojangles' Famous Chicken 'n Biscuits.com...Behemoth has the spiral staircase, but on the left side you can see the same couple stairs leading to nothing.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^ If you're talking about that small flight of stairs at the end of the break run, it's there for easier access to the train when stopped on the brake run.

I thought they were talking about the spiral staircase because that is still not installed either.

Oh, yeah, I meant to say your username but I just said they.

And Carnage, what do you mean when you say

^ If you're talking about that small flight of stairs at the end of the break run, it's there for easier access to the train when stopped on the brake run.

Like if the train doesn't stop completely between the breaks?

^He means if the train E-stops on the MCBR and stays there (I'm pretty sure). Which was kinda what I tried to say originally, but I made too broad a generalization.

But yeah, the spiral stairs aren't in place yet.
