Smooth has nothing to do with it. If the area around there isn't structurally sound, they have to replace it. The track might have been fine, but if the bracing and/or supports weren't, then obviously that's something that needs to get fixed.

Dragster will always have one train off the track, as they've pretty much gotten in their "operational niche" running it with 5 trains. Sometimes the 6th train will be on the transfer, other times it will be sitting in pieces somewhere, but what you saw isn't rare at all. Also, I believe it's the yellow train, but no need to get technical! ;)

^ Actually, from what I remember, TTD ALWAYS had that 6th train sitting on the transfer. This is the first year I have not seen it there.

I don't know the difference between waist and waste.

That's kind of what I figured. I probably should of typed that ;) .

Although I wish CP would of just left it and let it collapse :lol: .

You are correct. There's been six trains somewhere on TTD's track/transfer since 2003 until the end of last season.

If you know where to look, you can notice that the GOLD train has been taken apart and put in the storage behind STR to be used as replacement parts for the other 5 trains. If you look closely while riding you'll notice that all of the parts on each train are labeled by train/car/side (such as BC/6/L or something), on some trains, there are parts from the gold train.

It was sitting on top of the transfer track for about a week back in early June, probably while they were debating whether or not to put it back on the track for operation (obviously they didn't).



Green has not even been close to the transfer track at all this season its been sitting in the same spot since at least May

Should of taken a pic but it was there. It was sitting on it's up-stop wheels on top of the transfer track. Obviously they were not sure what they wanted to do with it. Did you take a few days off?

I do know green has not run all season, especially two weeks ago. For the last two months it's been sitting inside Mean Streak.
