What appears to be a small film crew


I believe Danny was on site when there was crew from Blue Peter on site so could be them?

Possible chain installation? Not quite sure yet.


Same dudes that were repainting today ! Probably repainting damaged/scratched areas of the track ! Looks to me that the chain links are still in them baskets !

Seems odd that they have a ride car 'on-site'! They must be intending on lowering it onto the track today, i mean, why else would they bring it out of storage ?. Maybe they're testing the transfer track, or putting them into the storage area, who knows.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if the electrics are pretty much ready to roll, they've had a lot of time to get it done while the other guys are finishing up the track work. It'll no doubt be a hive of activity in both buildings over the past few weeks, and the coming weeks too.

I'll say we'll see testing in maybe 1-2 weeks. Soon as the track is complete that'll be it! Themeing & quelines along with any other touch ups can be done while the testing process is going on.

I was wondering where to look but then I noticed the OTSR's just to the side of the trees so it is the train! XD let's hope  they are not scratched on the way to the site lol

Doesn't the train look a bit different? The front bar seems now to be in a curve, a 'smile' like curve? And other small changes!! And I can no longer see the horrid smiler logo. Or is it just me??

It may not be the front car, I assume the 2nd, 3rd, 4th row wont have the logo on the front.

It's just not something you would do ? You would keep in in the storage until it was ready to be put on the track ? surely !? You wouldnt take it out of storage and leave it next to the track for 'x' number of days would you ?

Could be completely wrong but could a train be there as if it goes on the track tomorrow the filming crew can get some shots of it in the station? I remember alton saying they try to use as much real footage for their ride adverts

According to 'Mushroom productions' ( Facebook Page ) Blue Peter are at The Smiler site today. Wonder if it could have anything to do with 'The Smiler' trains been lifted onto the track, seems possible no ?

As for Towers 2 Go i wouldn't believe everything they say. Think about it, why would they bring a train out of storage TODAY and leave it until tomorrow to put on the track ? I'll guarantee now, that train will be going on today.
