The official site has updated their pics again, and one of the pics shows the train going down the hill:
The others show the queue, some finishing construction, and one shows the train ready for camera mounting on media day!

Jasper did finally update the diary today. I was hoping he's go MUCH more in-depth about the experience....or at least tell us why there is one fewer car per train now :)

This is pretty reliable info,if you take my word for it. The reason that there is one fewer car per train is because they had a difficult time getting the trains over the top hat on a regular basis. They needed to make the trains lighter so the same amount of power from the launch would make it go over every launch. I'm not sure if Intamin had a similar problem when they tested it. As just a hunch, the difference in air pressure from where they tested the prototype and CP may be a reason. I may be completely off base with the whole air pressure thing, but its a theory.
