Just got back into Miami from Uni. Took loads of pictures of Potter and Rockit, I'll upload them later tonight.

The track section leading into the station HAS been installed.

I love New Zealand!

Sorry, I should have exaggerated more -- other than the tower and LED lighting, will it feature any other major special effects or theming?

I am not really sure of the exact location of the station and if this can be done, but will they build any facades around the station etc? And will things like fire/fog be added?

Again, my fault for not being more upfront with what I meant.

There won't be anything major. I'm sure they'll "theme" the station in some way, but otherwise it's bare bones.

Because it is kinda moronic when you have to scroll through 4 pages of trash to find any real updates.
