i've heard the term 'rolling stock' being used a lot, in terms of when track is sighted. Could someone please tell me what this term means?

It refers to any train(s) for that coaster. They roll, hence the name. For example; PTC trains for woodies & if B&M track is present, rolling stock could be Floorless, Inverted, Sit-Down or Stand-Up trains etc. The same term is used for trains on railways.

Couldn't we just say "cars"?

Sure, but ask a normal park goer what "Rolling Stock" is, and they'd probably tell you shares of GM or something. ;)

Well, perhaps. But for some coasters, a single car constitutes a train. And perhaps, you didn't see the entire train...

However, you saw rolling stock.

I always thought rolling stock was a runaway cow on roller skates.;)
