Roller Coaster Discussion

I like the idea of Pippin Dips as that's what John Allen named the coaster originally.

Oh I hope Roller Coaster gets new trains! It would be a blessing! I for some reason like the idea of Gravity Group's trains they have, plus they can get a lower height requirement that way.

Who makes woodie trains these days, besides the obvious PTC, GCI, and RMC?  Something about GCI's feel a bit too modern for a classic like Roller Coaster IMHO, but unfortunately I have no idea how they ride, so if they're better in the long run, then progress I guess.

I hope they don't go with PTC. Just not a fan of their trains. The GCI trains are very classic in their styling as they look similar to what the Giant Dipper ran originally at Belmont Park that opened in 1925. Just 4 years after roller coaster.
