It seems that Dick Knoebel either found someone to make him some trains, or got his hands on plans and is just going to do it himself.

Way to go Dick!

(Did that sound gay?)

^IMO, no, but only because it's in a coaster related context...

Here's the best photo I've found of the FT in action.

EDIT: Actually I did not "find it", Ted, AKA "coasterfanatic" did, as well as the photo of the car a few posts up.

The car pic was on a Euclid HS class reunion site.

The FT's in action pic is at Coaster1Robert's Page.

Do you think we can convince Knoebels that it's possible to build Expedition Ge Force out of Wood?

You can just change the Expedition GeForce track in No Limits into wood!

Let's practice by convincing them to give some updates on this project...

What's sad is that this project will take a backseat to El Toro in the area (at least with the GP). I'm really excited for this one-of-a-kind ride. I can't wait to get back to Knoebel's this season!

Well, it looks like the project is a "go". Knoebels posted some pix of the first stage of the Flying Turns project. Here is the link:
