^ Disregarding that I know for a fact that guests are generally very happy with X2, my point was just that--both X2 and Thomas are new. Therefore, how come X2 was pushed by the park and not Thomas?
What I was saying was regardless of whether or not it will stay that way--X2 IS the most popular ride in the park right now! You cant argue that.
I like the Revolution train. However, some of the little touches aren't true to the 1976 color scheme. The stars on the rear bumpers, for instance, and the paint detail on the sides of the cars below the door openings. Back then, it was just black with some rainbow tape dots. I do like the fact that they gave the front of the cars the old lettering style, though. And it does look funny to see trains with those colors with the tall headrests!
I don't think that the intent was ever to "copy" the 1976 trains, but rather create a train inspired by that design. I personally think the stars are an improvement over the dots.

As I said, the vibrations have been eliminated. The trains "glide" around. But the main "jolts" that throw your head into the restraint is still there. Those will never go away.

The sign atop the restraunt recieved a repainting (it desperately needed it) and it's open on weekends this summer.
