^That would make sense to have the slope then. I just thought I read somewhere that magnetic brakes can not stop a train fully. I guess the slope just keeps the train at a certain speed or something.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

Magnetic brakes can't fully stop a train, but if the track weren't at an angle, the train would probably eventually lose enough momentum that it would stop. But I don't get why it's at such a steep angle. I asked about this earlier.
I am out of ideas for what to write in this signature box.

^Probably steeper than sloped brakes should be just for looks.

I'm pretty sure nothing got done today, it was really cool to see the construction site though; when you go in Rivertown, you can look right down into the track and just imagine it flying overhead. Like....it's going to be LOW clearance. Casey, look out for that snake!

That wooden "support" is weird, but I guess they need some way to hold it up before they get the next supported segment up.
