The S&S 4-across car looks cool and all but I'm not so sure about the nose design...

I'm curious about the "family-friendly designs." More rides along the lines of Silver Dollar City's Powder Keg would be great (my favorite steel coaster of TPR's Mid-America Trip).

Looks like S&S has a poster behind their 4 across train promoting their Free Fly (Tranan) concept. I wonder if they have made any tweaks to the design and if any parks have shown serious interest.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!
