Pics of the trains on the track at www.sw5live.com.
Look a little strange, but gives an idea what the ride position will be like.

I don't see myself in Alton Towers anytime within the next 3 years, if I
ever go at all.

They look strange but will probably look better with riders.

Those are some interesting test dummies in this photo:

It's hard to tell, but they might be water dummies, if that yellow circle
on their heads is a screw-on cap.

Interesting.  I think those are the first water dummies I have seen that
have 'legs'.  I also notice that like all other 'ideal B&M coaster riders'
they do not have arms.......

Not quite. They just forgot that every one has TWO arms. :-)

LOL!  Think of this Dave.....what is the average dimensions of a swiss
guy?  Better yet, what are the dimensions of the guy designing the
rides :).

And Intamin ones don't have anything other than a torso - in fact,
they're plastic bags of sand from a local building merchant that
continually fall out onto the site below (specifically Colossus at
Thorpe Park).
