Considering the lattice work/posts going up in places along the route for Christmas Town, I highly doubt we'll see the trains running before then.

It is my opinion that the way Busch operates to try to pinch pennies in some operation areas, they may be milking all they can out of this train accident NOT to run the train. After all, the train is expensive to run. Busch typically closes earlier than the competing park and does not open the full park until 11ish. The closing of DarKastle with no replacement is another example, as well as letting Europe in the Air sit idle for a year. Busch to me is confusing as they definitely spend $ on landscaping, but then fall short in operations.

With the amount of work it appears they're putting in for the train Christmas Town light show, perhaps they wouldn't have run the trains during Halloween anyway. A lot of poles and black plastic would have made for a pretty ugly train ride.

I highly doubt they would voluntarily close the train on the highest capacity time of year. They probably started CT train setup early since the train is already closed.

Train update...kind of.
The train was closed from August until Christmas Town’s opening day Nov. 17. It was repaired in that time frame, park spokeswoman Cindy Sarko said.

“Safety is part of our culture at Busch Gardens and we take that seriously,” Sarko said. “The safety of our guests, ambassadors and animals remains our top priority. The park has taken multiple steps to address the incident that occurred on the train in August. The park’s maintenance and operations teams, along with an outside engineering company, worked to install added safety measures.”

We went on Friday last week and noticed the entire blue train's front car (engine / tender) has been removed from the track and was nowhere to be seen from Invadr. Previously it was covered with a tarp and sitting behind the Caribou Station. Hopefully it is off for repairs for next year!!!!
