If Lagoon could add anythin, what would you want them to add?

The bridges that they used on the north end of the Lagoon trail were used for traversing Farmington Creek in the area of RSR. The railroad wasn't rebuilt because the master plan for the area at the time also included RSR, making the PVRR (Old Ironsides) a useless expenditure, since it would have been in the way in a few years anyway and the bridges were better used to meet the trail commitment.

I still want the mine car roller coaster in Pioneer Village. The large animal pen is just the right size to fit it as well. Unfortunately, Farmington City has allowed construction of some high end homes at the back end of lots on Main Street though, reducing the likelihood of this happening.

There were plans that had the PVRR, RSR, and the Lagoon Trail, as I've seen them with my own eyes. RSR would have been shifted west from it's current location, Lake 2 would have been where the Mining Town Terraces are, and Baseball Diamonds where RSR's Station currently is. This is the same plans Braden has on Lagoon History with the relocated Green Houses. Additionally, the original plans for the Mine Train were to have it directly behind the castle bathrooms.

We have not been as enamored with the south end of the trail for some time, favoring the forest and bridges of the north half. The homes on the south end tilt it even more in favor of the north end.

I definitely agree with you. Those large houses are horrible eye-sores.

Braden's discussion talks about the multiple plan submissions. I believe that they did intend to re-establish the PVRR, but I think it was negotiated out of the plans. I don't know if you have ever been on Farmington Main St. on a quiet Sunday afternoon, but often the silence is broken by the whistle of a train more than the screams of people on rides. I don't think the Main St. crowd was interested in having the train push further to the east. However, I think that Lagoon would have liked to have had a train in PV. I think that three trains was two trains too many. Perhaps the grand loop discussed on Braden's page would have worked better, but the multiple crossing issue, as he mentioned, is problematic.

I do have questions about the Mine Train plans you saw. Which bathrooms are the castle bathrooms? What was the scale they were proposing. I think a mine train fits really well into PV, if they can incorporate some kind of sound mitigation.

The Castle Bathrooms are the ones just east and slightly south of the Bat. Used to be the nicest on the park. I do think a mine train coaster in PV would be awesome. I think something like Fire Chaser Express at Dollywood would be awesome back there.

The train whistle can be heard at my in-laws house up on the Farmington Bench south of the park.

The PVRR Right of Way wasn't changed in these plans I saw. Also, the Grade Crossings were not a Safety Issue, as the Main Crossing into PV was the same as the Tidal Wave Crossing with an Attendant and Automatic Air Gates. The "mine train" plans were small and very rudamentary.
