Loch Ness and Screamin' Eagle ran different length trains once...

Friday, January 8, 2010 10:37 PM

I'm searching all over for the pictures now.

There is one of the LNMonster interlocking in the loops, one train with the full 7 cars, and the other with 6 cars.

And the Screamin' Eagle has run with 3, 4 and 5 car long trains (3 bench PTC). I always thought that was totally puzzling when I was a kid. I can see why now. Just looking for the pics. The 3 car long train picture is the one I cannot find ....

(Screamin' Eagle runs with 2 bench/6 car PTC's now, and is rumored to get the G-trains from Twisted Twins. Not much interest in this topic, but just to inform.)

Cool info! Could you post the pictures that you HAVE found?

Wow! I was there opening day for Screamin' Eagle - my mom's younger sister and brother worked for Six Flags when they were in high school - and of course being 4 at the time I don't remember the train configuration then, but I don't remember anything except 4 3bench car trains until the change in 96 to 6 2bench car trains when they ran it backwards for the 20th anniversary. I too will have to find photographic evidence of different trains. VERY INTERESTING Demon.

Are you saying Nessie had a 7-car train and a 6-car train on the course at the same time? It would have been fun to stand in the station to see the expression of those queued up for the 7th car when the 6-car train pulls in.

^That's right Jeffrey. I remember staring at the picture in disbelief. I have no clue where it was, maybe in ACE magazine, advertisement, who knows. But it was several years before the internet took over.

^^^Dan, what is the easiest way to post pictures on this forum? I would be happy to post what I have found this far.

Oh, hmm...you can't. Haha

Can I shoot you my email address through PM, and get them through that?

You could always add them to photobucket so the rest of us can see them.

Can't you submit them to the database on this site?

LK, I didn't think we were allowed to use image hosts on this forum...?

We're not. I didn't mean that he should put the images on here from Photobucket, Dan. I meant that he could put them on Photobucket and post a link for us to click. :)

There are many other photo hosting sites too. I just like Photobucket for some reason.

^Hmmm... I'm lost and lazy :) I emailed the pics to Dan, so maybe he can put them somewhere for all to see (none of them are my pics!).

The only train(s) that I cannot find to complete this photo search are the old PTC trains running with 3 car trains. I have them in storage (far away in a cold basement) somewhere.
