Usually when I am in line, I am looking at all of the details I can regarding the track, cars, controls, etc. I am still new at this, but I have noticed that Intamin, for example, has their name on the main control panel and even the train wheels on Volcano. (You can stand right next to the main control panel while in line for Volcano. On the B&M coasters I have been on, the main control panel is on the unloading side of the station, so you can not see a lot.)
I was wondering if B&M, Arrow, or others have their "name" or logo on their coasters, and if so, where.
Thanks....and any links to pictures showing this would be outstanding.

Arrow puts a little round nameplate on each car for the new coasters; and each car has a data plate under the back end. Or is that just each train.
Most famous, of course, is the Schwarzkopf logo that is supposed to be on each car, but is often missing.
Zamperla puts their name anyplace they can find a spot.
Actually, I think most of the B&M control panels, if they have a nameplate on them at all, probably say "Consign AG" on them...

That's right, Consign AG does do the control system engineering for B&M. Thanks, I was trying to remember their name the other day. Makes sense they would have their name on the control panel.

On Millennium Forces trains isn't their a little nameplate thing that says "Intamin Giga Coaster" or something like that. I thought it was on every car too.

I dont think Intamin puts nameplates on every car. On SFA's S:ROS I think the "Intamin Mega Coaster) tag is only on car 3 or 4. Vekoma also has it's name on the wheels of its SLCs/Invertigoes.

Huss puts their logo everywhere possible on some of their flat rides.

On Raging BUll all the pipes under the station are labeled speed coaster.

Next designer coaster will be: "Inversion, by Calvin Klein"

I'm pretty sure MF has a name plate on every car. I remember it just being "Intamin," but I could be wrong.
The only other ride logo I remember seeing (keep in mind I rarely ride flat stuff) is the S&S one on the Power Tower; I didn't know what it was at the time and later found out S&S built it. I've looked on lots of coasters but haven't seen any.

Tell you what. When we saw that "Intamin Giga Coaster," it was all over...

There's a pic of Arrow's logo on Excalibur at VF at www.coastergallery.com

In the thrillride review of MF, there is a picture of the nameplate.

The MF name plates have 'Intamin Giga Coaster' on them, followed by the train and car number.
Blue = Train #1
Yellow = Train #2
Red = Train #3
'00 CP Trips: 23
