Do you think Arrow can convert the 4D track into a six across 64 passenger train minus the inside track. The track seems large and wide enough. Not to mention how reinforced the 4D track is. It seems that that kind of track and structure could support the weight and stresses to the structure.

Sure if you want it to be rougher and a lot less good... it will put more weight on the sides allowing for more of a toppling and rough effect. It would require major re-designing.

Plus the heartline(s) will be way out there. However as X is for real, this shouldn't be a big problem. I have thought a few times that they could add two more seats in the middle.
Funny, in '97 someone sent me their drawing of a new concept B&M train. He called it the "Hammerhead" & it looks exactly the same as a 4D train, only the seats are fixed & don't rotate. He even sent the drawings to B&M & they said it wouldn't work as there is too much inertia or something to do with having the mass off both sides of the track making it hard to yaw.
Coaster Bob, there have been several rumors years ago of the Arrow 64 Passenger Super Train. I wonder if there's any truth to it. My guess would be 16 rows of 4 or 8 of 8 (nah, that would look weird.)

I thought it was supposed to be a 64 passenger super mine train. That could be wild. Some seats backwards even?

I though it was suppose to be an 8 car train with 2 rows per car of 4 seats in each row. I think it can be done.
