Your favorite track support!

It can be steel or wooden, heck not even a coaster!

I can't really find a good picture but, I like on Cornball Express, the part where the track drops between two I-beams, which the scaffolding supports are suspended from, and from there go under the track to support it. It's like a hanging wooden coaster.

I also like the support under Raging Bull's trim on the cross-over hill. It's cool and cantilevered.

I'm a big fan of the Incredible Hulk Coasters supports,
I love how you exit underneath the launch tube and get to hear the rumble of the speakers and the WHOOSH of the launch, it's still epic.

^Those supports have been posted and reposted because of how funky they are. Apparently the park didn't want to disturb the creek, so they changed the supports for the ride into the weird shapes we like (and gawk at).

I always thought that the supports on Kanonen where it comes down off the tophat and over the river/stream/lake/thing as well as the way that there isn't a single support going over the first time.
