Try looking at www.rcdb.com, they probably have a pic of one.

BTW, Arrow doesn't make wood coasters.

According to Rideman, there are the last two operating PTC trains that were trailered wrong:



Please visit the small parks. We don't know what's happening behind the scenes

But they do make Mine Coasters, which uses wood as the frame. (i.e. Adventure Express - PKI).

Define "good picture". What specifically are you wanting to see? The PTC trailered cars look just like their standard 2-bench cars except for the hitch and the wheels; in fact the lead car of a trailered PTC train is a standard articulated car.

That said, I think I have some detail shots around here of Raging Wolf Bobs, Thunder Run, and possibly Predator.

Oh, and if you visit my web site and look in the "Adventures" section, there is a movie clip there called Ride the Roller Coaster. At 1:14, right after the shot of the old Blue Streak platform, there is a shot of Thunder Run's old red trailered train shuffling through the 180-degree turn at the bottom of the first drop. At 3:49, third shot from the end of the clip, is a similar shot of Thunder Run with its current articulated train. It's a little hard to see through all the compression (I need to re-do that clip with cropping and 3ivx encoding...) but you can see a difference between the way the red train runs and the way the yellow train runs.

Once more children—if it has a wood frame and steel track, it's a STEEL coaster.

Perhaps by "Arrow Wood" he means a ride built by S&S-CCI-Arrow. Though I personally would be more interested in Gravity Group wood.

California Screamin- it's good!

If your house is burning up, do you throw gasoline on it?

Think about it, folks...

peace, love, coasters.
