Wow that's going to be a steep short section of track going into the turn into station lol seesh!

 

It does look like they are bolting it down.

Can someone please take the screenshot of the cranes above and add the names by them that were agreed upon in paint and repost? That might help with others coming into the conversation.

I think there will just be very minimal straight track at the bottom of the brake run, I circled the supports from the animation.

Wow that is going to be an absolutely steep break run. Wonder if that will have any impact on the wear and tear of the system?

Most of the deceleration is done by the magnetic brakes, which produce heat via eddy currents. The friction brakes are mainly used in applications where an on/off state is required (like trims or safety brakes). If you go back to the animation you can see how the mag brakes do most of the braking work which saves on replacing the pads.

I know there's a lot of glare, but it looks like they are putting up yet another brake run support this morning.  That means there will be three of them waiting for track to be installed.

The top of the brake run is about as tall as that first piece of track

I wonder when track will go up?

I'm just gonna predict that we will see the first piece of the brake run go up after the crews get back from lunch so around 1pm est.

 

Edit: At the rate they are bringing in parts for Zeus today we will hopefully get to see it vertical very soon!

JUST drove by on I-71.  Definitely a good sized white crane with its boom fully extended in the northern end of the parking lot with what looks to be red boom pieces of the giant crane (Zeus) around it.
