in 1984 Six flags over Mid America now Six Flags Over St. Louis converted their mine train to a stand up coaster called the Rail Blazer. It was only around for one year.

That is a great video...especially since photos of those trains are so scarce.

Thanks

Didn't Worlds of Fun have similar trains on their stand up coaster? You wouldn't be able to make the Rail Blazer in No Limits because it doesn't have two seat wide stand up cars. If you look closely at the River King Mine Train at SFSTL you can still see some the red paint from the Rail Blazer peeking through the brown paint.
