Could it be?!  Are they installing the first piece of track?

Looks like it to me, I thought it would be at least a day or two until the first piece of track went in.

When do we usually get another piece of track installed?

It looks like they moved that flatbed trailer over to haul another piece of track over.  Maybe today?

The next piece of track will probably be transfer track, unless they install another support.

I know it was mentioned before but was it ever confirmed about two different colors of supports. Based off of wild gravity post you can see that the station support is dark grey. I wonder how much of the supports will be that dark grey maybe the entire lift hill?? Then the rest is the light grey.

It's possible that the area in and around the station will be a darker shade of grey to match the materials that currently make up the station but I would not expect to see two different colors in the manner in which you see Diamondback.

It would also make for a good view when Orion is built.

They are now installing yet another support in the turnaround, and a crane is lifting another track piece.

Sorry for the double post, but they're moving track now.

This is the first piece that was installed this morning.  The second piece installed is out of view (beside the transfer shed.)

The transfer piece you mentioned being put in place was actually just stored in another area (on the other side of that crane) - they didn’t install it today.  They probably put it in its current place so that it will be easy to install tomorrow/Monday.

Man, it's taking shape.

Yes, I've seen it above. No, I didnt get pictures. No, I wont say anything else. We will save pics for when we get above the 100' height of track.

That one likely has track already on it.  I saw a piece being installed behind the transfer shed and it isn’t visible on the cam.

There is no track installed besides the one that is visible. Its sorta hard to see but you can see the two supports with no track on them

Collin, the piece I’m referring to is behind the transfer shed and thus not currently visible.  I watched the cam live as they lowered the piece into place with a crane, and it was held in that spot for approximately 30 minutes or so until the crane moved on.

Edit:  You can see the blue of the track here.  It seems to be on the same plane as the track that’s already installed, and this is the area where the track was being lowered into place yesterday by the crane.

I saw this also, short straight section between the curved track and the transfer track.
