Yeah a few of sites have all ready gotten pics of that. Try ACN, they have the best of SFMM and they have clear visible shots.

I don't see any photos on ACN that say or show anything about X's new train. Anyway, I'm hoping that it'll boost up X's line time alot.

Well, don't count on the third train shortening the line much. X just takes a long time to load and unload (and X is short [in lenght] and there is nothing you can do about that).

I don't see any pix of it. Can someone post a working link?

Sorry about the link not working guys. The website is acting funny now.

The train is in pieces right now or at least as of yesterday.

The crew has the loading/unloading pretty much down by now, when I went last week, a train left the station probably every 2 minutes, dont see how they could improve on that. The 3rd train will be probably used only while another train isin rehab, dont see how 3 train operation would boost capacity.

Your right Alexlaca, X will work very much like Ninja. There may be three trains, but I don't believe you'll ever see all three running. Rather when one train goes into rehab, the third train will replace it.

Like California Screamin, which has 6 trains, but only ever uses 5 (If that) at once.
Or The Incredible Hulk, which has 4, but only uses 3 at a time.
And Unlike X-Flight, where they have 3 trains, and only ever use the same 2 for the whole season (A.K.A. "The Parts Train" [The black train])

Yep, same here.
I can't think of a good signature.

I know this is a little off topic but i didnt want to start another topic for such a small question. So my question is does anybody know what's the name of the song played in the most recent X video posted on sixflagnews.com? I want to put together a mix of songs to go with a mix or variouse coasterz. Oh yea and who is the song done by?

Zero-g....XFlights black train was in operation. It was only for a week or so though. From what I was told, that train eventually got programmed for special capabilities. I'm not sure how true it is, but hopefully all of the trains will be able to do what it can.

Hmm, how many total trains does Goliath have? Or RRV? Just wondering, cause I've seen 3 train operation on these rides plenty of times. Can't imagine that SFMM would run only 2 train operation, especially during the summer months, on their new signature coaster. Even without a block brake, with one train unloading, one loading, and one on the circuit, could be done. Hope you guys are wrong, otherwise the lines this summer will be unbearable.

I hope I'm wrong to Draco, and will *gladly* eat crow if I am. 3 trains on X would make my summer.
See, I don't ask for much.... ;)

When I went on Saturday (3/30) all I saw were the seats of the third train half covered sitting by a fence in the dirt. I didn't see anything else. Hopefully they'll get this train together soon.
Draco: Both Goliath and Riddler's were running 3 trains on saturday.
