I was in Batavia, Ohio yesterday and drove by this place called Southern Ohio Fabricators on Old Route 72 (or 73) They had a couple pieces of B & M track laying there in their parking lot. They were red and yellow. Does anyone know anything about this? Thanks!

Odds are this is the fabled firm that manufacturers B&M track in the US. It's a well known fact that their track comes from the Cincinatti area. I never knew the name or location of the place, but I'll bet this is it.

SOF does the fabrication for all the US B&M's so the track you saw is destined for either SFGAdv or SFGAm for their S:UF coasters...

Like ShiveringTim said, its likely that the track could have been fabricated there. As for the colors, its likely that the track belongs to 1 of the 2 S:UF clones being built.

We have a winner. Yeah, that is the place where the track is fabricated. I have posted a few months ago a link to pictures of the track and supports there, both painted and unpainted. Though I haven't seen red and yellow track come out of there in a long time. The blue and yellow track for california was only coming out about 3 pieces a week at most, recently.

Does SOF do the fabricating of Huss rides as well?

Who wants to place bets on how long it takes someone to put a webcam pointed towards that place?

As far as I know, HUSS fabricates their rides in Germany. Delerium was totally constructed and tested in Germany before it was dismanteld, and shipped to PKI.
Shaggy and I both saw sections of Superman's track heading north on I-65 in Indiana on Sunday afternoon.
