Red train on SROS at SFNE is removed from track.

Wednesday, June 12, 2002 7:47 PM
When I was at SFNE on 6/8 the red train was on transfer track but when I was there today 6/12 the red train had been removed. I asked one of the operators whats wrong with it and he said it needs more repairs done to it and does'nt know when they will have it fixed. I would like to know if the accident was Intamins fault why didn't they replace it with a new train instead of trying to fix the smashed one. It looks to me that SROS is going to have one train operating for the rest of the season.I hope thats not the case.

At least its better than no train like it was when I went last year. I was in tears literally. ;( I only rode Thunderbolt, Cyclone, Great Chase, Knightwing, and Scream. I really didn't like SFNE that much. The lines were long, it was dirty, and sros wasn't open! I should have saved the trip for this year.

That's not good news. :( Was it Intamin's fault or was it a maintenance issue with the air line that burst? I know they were replaced with steel reinforced lines.

I'm not sure who blame should be placed on, but I feel that the park has to take a good part of it for not having the second train ready for now. Complete new rides are constructed, tested, and opened in less time than it has taken SFNE/Intamin to fix one or a couple cars on Superman's train. To me it looked like the front car was new and the rest of the train was the old one, judging by the shiney color underneath the running boards on the first car and the rusty color in the same spot on the other cars. They've probably putzed around getting it ready and now there's another problem and they're going to pay for it by having no second train for a busy part of the season and lots of unhappy guests. It seems like they should have been making a better effort during the offseason and early season so that if something wasn't right, it would have been long corrected by now.

Um, ok, this makes no sense at all. The red train is there on there and it is now undergoing testing. Don't believe me? Here: http://www.sfne.zzn.com

Why didn't Six Flags just buy new cars. It's less time consuming and it will make people happier fast. I don't think new trains could have cost that much. I mean its not cheap, but it would be better for their customers.
