B&M Track Spotted outside Baltimore

Wednesday, October 4, 2000 4:07 AM
red and yellow track (red rails and yellow box support) was seen heading east toward Baltimore recently on 270 east. Experts predict this is for Dorney's new Invert.

Or possibly the new hyper at SFGAdv?

That sounds like a good bet. Are they painting rails now on B&M rides? I noticed that they did on Batman at SFO, but it was kind of a gray primer color.

That would be a nice change......obviously rails wear down over time where the wheels track, but it is still a great visual effect to have them painted. The standard B&M steel gray has gotten really old. Just look at Vortex at KI (well, when it was new!!!) and King Cobra. Painted rails look especially pleasing when they accent (match) the stripes on the trains.

Judging by the colors, it is probably for Dorney, though, why would it be on I-270. That road goes north-south. Maybe Sam ment I-70 going east-west twords Baltimore. Track on 270 might be going to SFA or SFG though.

Jeff, Kraken at Sea World has painted rails. They are teal just like the spine.

Hmmm....Talon won't have any red rails, i think Talon will have orange, yellow, teal and browinsh colors, and the Superman ride for SFGADV will have red and blue track, my best bet is track for SFA, perhaps the standup???

No, the standup is going to be RR if it is ever built, and that one is green. It could be for the floorless that I had heard rumors of at one time, but it is more likely going to SFG, as the floorless rumor that I heard for SFA concerned a Knight Flight partial clone.
