I have a few questions about X-Flight. 1st, How will the trains be put on each track in the station? 2nd, how long will they have to test X-Flight for? 3rd and final, does anyone know when X-Flight's trains will arrive on site or are they already on site?

i only know the answer to the first question and it is it will kind of work like a log flum or a swtichtrack railway. the track outside the station will move from one side of the statioon to the other.
are you ready to go vertical?...V2 SFMW 2001 ...

hypersonic is right about the first question. Another example of this loading system is Disneyland's (and possibly WDW's) Big Thunder Mountain RR. That uses a two station system with a switch before and after. To answer the second question, I read somewhere that they'd like to get 100hrs of testing in. As for the third question, I have no idea. Based on the fact that all the track and supports have been on site for months, I can only guess that the trains are in a storage shed somewhere. If not, I'd bet that they'll arrive soon.
