The last piece going in after 160 days worth of construction, taken from KI's Twitter.

And here's a video on TPR's youtube channel showing the track being maneuvered into position.

I hate the yellow!! I thought the trains would have the same colour as track. Purple and blue. But those seats look super comfy!!

They also tweeted the following:
The process of placing the first Banshee train on the track could begin as early as today.

I wonder why there is such a small control room, seems very small for such a big station. Also do we know if the building is going to be completely enclosed or will it not have sides?

I get what you mean, but i'm reserving judgement until opening day. Who knows, it may work.

If you have ridden the Swarm, you would know how comfy these style restraints are. Really looking forward to a testing video!

Totally agree with you Dan, it also negates hitting your head on the side of the restraint as they is just the foam padding by the side of you
