I read somewhere that PKD is changing the seats on XLC. I was wondering if any of you have heard anything about it. I'm not sure what type they would have changed to.

The seats are great as they are. I don't see any reason what-so-ever for them to change them.

They DID change from 2001 to 2002. Mostly just the seats got wider and a little taller. That and the nose of the train got shorter, and they took off the windshield. Other than that, there havent been any changes, and I dont think there will be. The only change I can possibly want is for them to make the move toward getting a 3 train op up and running full time. I have seen it done, and I wish they would keep it that way.

Over at screamscape it does indeed say that XLC will get seat modifications. I'm curious.

The only pics I saw of the "new cars" showed them covered by a tarp so you can't really see much in the way of anything.
BTW RCTFan,that was some great coverage of SD:HM's construction over at PKDPlace.com ,it seems like the ride is coming together really well(although I still might pass on it) & some of the other off season work was interesting to see as well,namely FOF's rehab work.
