3r1c - in addition to being slightly different layouts the biggest problems with Psyclone can be attributed to the following:
1] excessive trim braking.
2] wood coaster trains - from B&M, no less - that are way too heavy and cause excessive track wear and misalignment.
3] the replacement of much of the track bed from wood to steel I-beam.
4] sub-par maintenance [in my opinion]
Surely the main problem with Psyclone is that it was built by Summers/Dinn whereas the other cyclone copies at sfga, sfaw, and sfog were built by other companies. As I understand it, most of the Summer/Dinn woodies are very rough, with the possible exceptions of Timber Wolf and Thunder Run.
In other words, what i'm saying is, we can look at lots of factors, which do not help Psyclone's operation, but at the end of the day, if the quality of the initial product when it was built, was sub-par, there's nothing that can really be done to change this. Although, I have read that large parts of psyclone have been periodicly re-built/re-tracked. However, the fact that it's still bad despite sf's attempts to improve it lead me to the above view that the initial product was simply sub-par.
