So to me it looks like we have all supports up but possibly two of them? I don't see support 3, but it could just be hiding and I think support 12 hasn't gone up yet.

12 being the support that takes it towards under the hill?

Yeah, it's kind of hard to see in the animated picture since it's behind/under a bunch of other track and supports.

Remember how back before Orion was announced and we were super desperate about the stats being a typo? Now we are super desperate about the track work ending this month :D

I think 7,8,9,10 are the only ones that can be seen above the treeline.

12 is definately on the way out of the helix toward the head chopper element.

Why are we desperate about having the track work done before the end of the month? So we can watch a boring web cam until the middle of March? lol Just asking for a friend.

 

 

On a side note we could check for themeing once track work is done.

Wasn't asking. Just kind of funny.

You want track work done so they can start testing, which would be more exciting than watching them put 3 pieces of track in a day.

I know but they won't test until sometime in March.

I think they tested Diamondback late February if I remember correctly.

Track is going in right now! Continuing the track where they left off.

The first test video of Diamondback is dated February 27; for reference Fury's was March 5.

The weather locally is nice and hopefully the use as much of the day as possible.

T-Bone looks to be ready to pick up another section of track to install.

Anyone taking bets track will be done this next Saturday? 

I would not be surprised if track work was completed by the end of this week or sometime next week.

Yes, it is. Not a big surprise, though. The blueprints indicated it and you could see the maintenance building for it under construction during the construction tour in December.

Actually, it is somewhat of a surprise because Don said that there would be no trims until the final break run. Multiple people heard him say this. Hopefully, this trim will be like Banshee's which is hardly used.

I think he meant no MCBR. The blueprints showing the trim have been available since May. But as you said, hopefully it’s not too bad/rarely used!

I always assumed it would act similar to Banshee's, but I guess we will see in a few months.

Yeah, he was specifically asked about trims. MCBR was not in the question. He may have thought that's what I meant, though.
