Who made SoB's trains, Premier?

Look here...this is supposed to be a Intamin Train. Notice the similarities?

WOW you're right...that is exactly what Sonny uses. But I thought they were Premier.
Thanks for riding Tidal Wave and enjoy your day here at Marriott's Great America!!

which coaster is that? There was some woodie in Europe that I believe originally had Intamin trains, but were quickly swapped out for Premier trains for some reason... I don't remember details though, might be in Google's RRC archive somewhere.

That pic you show is NOT an Intamin wooden train. It is an Intamin woodie! The only Intamin wooden coaster trains in use are on Colossus at Heide Park. They are a cross between the hyper cars and wooden cars. Here is the link...scroll down a a little and you will see the ONLY Intamin wooden trains:

just scroll and you will see how open and perfect the Intamin wooden trains are.

I've seen that picture a few times,I think it's the coaster train for Vekoma's Robin Hood coaster.
At least that's what I've been told on a few chat boards.

Strange, that first pic is on the bottom right of Yet there are other pics of 4-to-a-car trains with silver 'cowcatchers' on the same page.

Then again woodies can take different brands of trains.

no OTSR's on the Premier SOB trains, just lapbars.

Wild Wild West was the one I was talking about that might have originally had Intamin trains (or so says RCCA's website) but now has Premier trains. The photos of the Intamin trains on RCCA's site ( look nothing at all like either Premier trains or the Intamin trains on Colossos. (The headrests are totally different, for one thing.) Weird stuff, eh?
