Hey, Vekoma... Read This!

I am not sure if Vekoma has thought of this, or even if someone else has brought this up before.... but here it goes.

Could a standard Vekoma SLC run with "Invertigo style" trains? The track looks the same to me. I think that using those trains on the SLC would make for a pretty cool ride. The slogan could be (coaster name here)...Once Is NEVER Enough!

Just a thought... is this possable?

Gotta ride 'em all!

That stinks, now I can't look out my window and see coaster track.

The track looks pretty darn close to the same gauge if you ask me (but what do I know). The question is... could you an SLC backward and not yack? The long trains push and pull all over the course, and that's tough to deal with as it is!

I would say theoretically yes, personally no. If the gauge is same, and I think it is, you could also run any Arrow corsckrew train or Boomerang train (with mods to the anti rollback, brake, chain dogs, etc) and run it on an SLC's track.

From what I have read, all vekoma is of the same gauge.. All should be able to run on the track... That is the next protype, regular coaster car on an inverted track. How nuts would that be, upside down for 3 minutes...
