XC has just posted a brand new Hydra update from 8/09/04. The lift track is starting to rise. There is alot of track on the ground, Along with twisted track, so we might see a twist out of the station. Anyway, Check out the update.
I suppose I saw two segments of Hydra's track sitting on a flatbed truck around here. As part of my daily commute, I go on this back road (that connects Rt. 136 to Rt. 30 near Adamsburg/Irwin PA, if you want to know) and this truck was parked in a driveway. There is always some kind of truck parked there, so maybe he is a contracted driver of some sort.
From Thursday-Saturday last week two green pieces B&M track were on the truck. They were both crests and one was the crest of the lifthill, I believe. It had the chain guide running in the middle of the track and the teeth along the side. I wondered where it could be going in August and after looking at these pictures, that track is the same color of the ones I saw on the truck.
I was at Dorney this past saturday, and checked out the progress. At the rate they are going they will have the track assembled before winter. It won't be no problem for them to have it ready for opening day 2005!
I've seen a total of around 9 flat beds on I-71 here in Ohio with in the last 3 days. ALL trucks I have seen were all carrying straight section of track. Each truck had 2 pieces on it. None of the pieces looked liked they had much/if any arc or twist to them.
Well, these pics along with the inversion order/placement info in the other threads and the height info Legendary just handed out - you should be able to pretty much start seeing how this one is going to go into place
