I was there Tuesday, I looked for tracks but couldn't find them. Turns out they were delivered the day after xD
Luckily I have an annual pass :D

Hmmm it's a bit more a teal green than I was expecting but that is okay because it looks great :D

Not much track action yet. Obviously since not many footers have been placed yet. It looks like they are more working on getting the base of the station building ready. I do hope to see some more footers soon. Even tho winter is pretty mild in the Netherlands, you'd never know when it actually strikes.

Update:
Image
Station making progress

Image
External wall

Image
Concrete footers being poured at -1┬░C. I remember it used to be pretty bad for the concrete to pour it when it freezes. Does it now-a-days matter?

Image
Busy digging out all the fundamentals.

Image
With some luck they might have poured all the concrete before christmas. :)

Image
After that they should have plenty of time to bolt down the ride. Since at that point it doesn't matter if it's freezing or not.

Image
Plenty of steel footers just sitting there and waiting.

Image

Image
This is becoming the building for the transfer track.

Image
And the station slowly receiving it's enclosure. :)

Track pieces have been spotted at the Ohio B&M Plant. Some believe track/supports could be en route already as the station is nearly finished and footers are being poured.

www.screamscape.com has pictures of the track at the plant.
