Holiday World bought 5 cars so they will have enough to make a 2nd 7-car train, so it won't be a completely new PTC train.

Just remember the trains sent out to Holiday World are basically prototypes, so I'm not surprised at all. It's going to take time to work everything out =)

I know more about donkeys than women!

Paula could answer that best.

I've only been there for HoliWood Nights the past three years and they only had two running. They've got loading down to a science and two work great with the way they do things. Actually, I think I may have asked Will about that one time and he said three trains didn't really help with throughput. The third train would just keep people waiting in the brake run.

Plus, with two trains, they don't need to use the brake at the end of the turn around before the triple-down.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Yes. I attended Holiwood Nights in 2006 and they ran all 3 trains during ERT Saturday night. I'm not sure about Friday night.
