No, it's just NL making the train models specifically for project presentations, like how Gerstlauer has the launch trains:

Let's hope this is one of those "more than meets the eye" coasters. Mack has never "wow'd" me before, even with Blue Fire. I'll be honest, I thought that Blue Fire was a complete waste of money, time, and energy. The shaping is sooooo ugly....
So, my friend came up to me the other day and asked if I wanted a frozen banana, and I said no, but I want a normal banana later, so... yea.

I think Blue Fire is mostly a family ride, and most of the time, while it can create a nice aesthetic that people may notice, shaping doesn't really matter to anyone but us. I'm not a big fan either, but I think given the family demographic they did a pretty good job.

For my part,I can say that shaping is only a visual thing,as the odd shaping offers extra awesomness!The "heartline"roll is just awesome!

I'm pretty excited to see a coaster like this. 2 Launches! I hope this, along with Cheetah Hunt, will start a trend of "Multiple Launch Coasters". While this coaster may look a little boring, I like the blitz feeling. I can't wait to see what's next.
