Best themed train

What do you think is the best themed coaster train?

Dueling Dragons is pretty impressive. The pink harnesses in the front representing the tongue are pretty cool. Rock'n'rollercoaster's trains have that kick butt sound system, though.

I would definitly have to say Jaguar, at Knott's Berry Farm. The front of the trains have stone carvings of animals, the main one of course being a jaguar.

The new paint job on Ghostrider will look sweet. It gets my vote.

PCN, the Pennsylvania Cable Network, does tours of different plants and factories around the state. Not too long ago, they re-aired the tour of the Philadelphia Toboggan Company factory. At the end, to show the "final product," they showed Ghostrider's trains. Although they didn't actually say, "These are for Ghostrider," they did say, "Here we see trains for a new wooden roller coaster that is going to open in late '98 at Knott's Berry Farm in California. The new coaster is going to be themed to be a 'wild west'-type ride, so they're painted this beautiful copper, silver, and gold." My memory's sketchy on the colors, though... I think that's what they said, but you get the point regardless. It was pretty interesting to see them sitting there in a showroom all clean and ready to go.

What this has to do with "best themed train," I have no idea, but it's worth telling. ;)

The Gwazi trains look cool with the animals faces and bright colors. I like the look of Lightning Racers trains, the millenium flyers. The open fronts give them a sleek look.

My vote is for The (long gone) Bat. To bad Arrow and Kings Island could not get the bugs (really big bugs)worked out of it.

I was waiting for that episode for a long time! I never saw it, hope it come on again.:( Most of those shows are boring unless your into the making of crayons or bells and the other stuff. The Yuengling Beer tour and Harley episodes were good though(for a short while anyway).

coasterpunk, if you're that interested, you can buy a tape of it for $30. Check this out:

http://www.pcntv.com/tourlist.html

The link at the top doesn't work. I don't really know what it's supposed to link to, though, so I suggest just giving them a ring. And if you didn't notice, the tours are in alphabetical order.

I've got to agree with lumpy; The Bat's trains were just beautiful.

Thanx Lynch, but I think I'll save the 30 bucks and wait for the next airing on April 26th. ;)

I'm with Soggy on this one! Thunder Mountain all the way! But I will say I LOVE the look of Magnum's and Bat's. OOOOH! I almost forgot.......Space Mountain! The glow-in-the-dark stripes are a nice touch. *** This post was edited by ARROW GUY on 1/28/2001. ***

My favorite trains have got to be the ones on SFNE's Cyclone. Although the ride isn't themed the cars have the greatest looking paint jobs by far. All the cars on the PTC a painted like American flags waving in the wind. I just thought they are the greatest looking as soon as I saw them.
