Following last weekend's Fall Affair at Holiday World, we had a chance to get some close-up shots of the new Timberliner trains that are testing on The Voyage.

See the photos on the CoasterBuzz Facebook page.

I wonder if they will be better than GCI's Millenuim Flyers?

Very nice pictures! I saw those cars in person, and wasn't able to see that level of detail that is in the pictures. Satisfies my coaster nerd today!

As awesome as this is, it is a real bummer these never got unleashed to the public this year :( However, waiting for something ride related to open is certainly just part of being an enthusiast.

Yes, and we can be very understanding depending on the park involved.

I don't know, I tend to think we CAN be very understanding based on the totality of circumstances...

Timberliners and Flying Turns aren't *just* located at favored parks, they're also involving major changes in the way things have been done for the past half-century or so....

Someone (just as an example) failing to get a variance on a height restriction (a la V2.1 at SFDK) - that's fairly unforgiveable...IMO.

Cedar Point's problems that have received the greatest flack from enthusiasts have also involved revolutionary technology.

But Carrie, Cedar Fair is an evil, tree killing, baby hating corporation. ;)

^To be fair, CP's repeated fumbles seem to have involved a certain nameless "hated" company that just keeps having trouble again and again without any significant learning...

Although, to be fair to everyone, that company DID replace those bastardly OTSRs on I-305 with something new and reportedly MUCH better.

Oops, I think I released critical info that might be used to ID said company...LOL! ;)

^ I thought most of the criticism aimed at CP was mainly due to their inability to operate/deliver tried and tested technology. If it was pioneering technology, I guess people would be more sympathetic.

My point exactly. :)

And who built Pilgrims Plunge again? That's the ride with the really big splash or the really small one? ;) :)

...and I recall a bunch of folks questioning HW's decision to go with "that" company.

Honestly, Carrie is right about this more than she is wrong (or than I am right, LOL). Just trying to point out that there are a ton of factors to be considered when deciding who "gets a pass" and when...

I probably tend to be more understanding than most...but I'm also a fairly harsh critic when I think "now THAT was foreseeable"...

I've been barking up that tree for years, Carrie.

I think all that I've learned is that people don't like their hypocrisy and biases pointed out to them. ;)

And, honestly, that's why I love interacting with you around here, Gator. :)

Edited because Gonch got in there.

And someday that may actually stop us from doing it. Today is just not that day. :)

You obviously have an unfair bias towards the truth.

Indeed I do, Andy. At least some may consider it unfair. :)
