Intamin does have a train that is similar to a GCI running on one of their steel coasters. It's somewhere in Japan and is an indoor coaster. Since half of the engineering is already done, I wouldn't be surprised to see that design converted for wood and using El Toro type restraints.
Here's the train in question. It's on the coaster Galaxy Express 999 (based off of a cartoon with the same name I think), which is in the Aqua Stadium indoor complex in Tokyo. It has a tire-propelled launch into a small loop.
I'm not familiar with ASTM standards, but if they were to use this train design they may have to heighten the backrests.
Data entry nut for the official TPR coaster poll! https://coasterpoll.com/ Follow me on Instagram for perfectly adequate theme park photos! The opinions that I post on this forum do not necessarily represent those of the company I work for.
^ I kinda remember those trains being not that good, but my memory stinks and I can't think of why. I'm sure the 90 minute pre-show you have to watch before getting on the coaster ruined my recollection.
^I have a feeling that RMC's coaster design will be loosely based on the NTAG trains. Obviously designed with different themeing. But that's just a guess, and I'm an idiot. Soooooooo take from that what you will.

Howdy neighbors, Construction Chadster here bringing you the latest update on the movie theatre, erm, Outlaw Run! While there hasn't been too much in the way of track going in since media day, a ton of work has been completed on the station area. The 'Top' track is also now in place on the lift and drop. The park was packed today, and that's no joke. For anyone familiar with the park they were using tram stops 1-All which means every available space the park has.
Ok, so enough chatter, let's take a look at what I have.
Time to go Back to The Future.
Where everyone who had fire in the hole waved to let you know.
A time when people did things by hand.
And used Rooster Flour.
I know now!
For some reason the park had a ton of cocks on display.
Of all shapes and sizes.
If you found one you didn't like, you could put it back and try another one.
Everyone's taste is different and some taste different than others so variety is key.
Apparently people like eating these on Sunday's.
But I digress
So choose the cock of your liking as we are in a hurry, no need to be picky, plenty more to choose from later...
And we are here.
Looks like they are getting a move on installing the top portion of the track.
The railings are mostly finished as well.
Lots of site work going on here.
Which I can only guess is a good thing.
Yup, still there.
I did manage to find a ladder though, so that's good. I was concerned there were no ladders.
Tons of wood. (This is the turn after the train comes up the ravine and before it dives under the lift.)
Yet so awesome. Get ready we are about to go down and under!
And we've gone under!
Looks like a roll.
Looks like it's coming out of a roll.
Look, more porn!
The color scheme of the building is more prevalent from this side.
Looks like Mr. Spacely has installed the sprockets.
Well most of them anyway
Who says you can't get things to grow when it doesn't rain! Sticks have sprouted for the transfer track.
Zooming in we see lighting is installed and a ton of other work going on.
So there it is, getting all pretty for us.
This week we stop by the bakery and watch them make some sort of roll with meat and cheese.
No clue what it is, but it looks good.
There you have it. Time for me to hit 88 MPH and head Back to The Future!
