The horizon behind it is sloped? Hope so at least....

If its like Diamondback... I am sure it is. All they do is lift the train into the storage shed track and push them by hand to connect each car together. I am sure there is electric by now as well. It is run underground so it has been there for awhile. I also remember reading in a blog or something that the operating system is nearly all in place.

 

@Waltny is there anyway whenever you drive past again to zoom in to the lift hill. Can we see if the chain is already in place?

I did some due diligence and  when the sun is right overhead of the lift hill there is a spot over on GWL parking lot I should be able to shoot right down the belly of The Beast. My question is, how did we collectively miss it if it did go in the way the webcams are watched like a hawk?

It’s just the angle the photo was taken, I straightened it out and it looked fine.

Sorry for the double post, but Cleo is installing/moving track!

So they put those pieces in and it was visible on the cam? 

Thursday morning edit: That track did not end up going in after all. It also looks like the cranes are set up assembly line style to get track in place to the head chopper element quickly with the other crane doing supports out to the brake run.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Also, what does BY stand for? Big Yellow? If so that would be a hilarious name for a crane :lol:.
