Oh I'm not the guy to ask about when the trains arrive as I'm neither a staff member of Gröna Lund nor Gravity Group. But I can make a guess. I would guess we'll be able to see trains in first half of april when the track is finished, the lift hill got some chain installed and when the coaster is ready for some testing.
I might visit the park this spring but I don't own a good enough camera to use, might be able to borrow one, we'll see.
Anyway, we got some new pictures on facebook and rcdb.com

First a few from gravity group's facebook http://www.facebook.com/#!/album.php?fbid=438094194027&id=45279469027&aid=241457
Camelbacks and turns

The roof is done and the bridge over it is ready for the last bents to be raised.

Well... the picture speaks for itself.

And the last picture is taken by Doug Ekström-Ahlby.

And on the web cam after sundown you can see some testing of a few light bulbs on the first cammelback. This is gonna look beautiful at night when all the lights are installed.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Here's a view of the fresh, new lift hill. It's just asking you to ride it...

<sighs>

THIS is one of the Must-See Parks in the world I know everybody should get to at least once in their lifetime.

And I hope I can get to go there again in the next few years, with another TPR tour, hint hint, LOL!

They are so creative and amazingly talented in how they fit everything together and around each other.
Grona Lund is a very cool park to visit and enjoy.

And this new coaster will certainly be a hoot to add to my coaster credits, I'm sure, heh heh. :airtime:
Talk is Cheap :idea: Action is Pricele$$

This park looks awesome! I swear it looks so much like an RCT-park that most of us have created at one point, that it's amazing.

Am I the only one that noticed how intense the first drop's descent is? Sure the ride isn't that tall, but in the back, the first drop will be amazing! :airtime:
