Griffon Mystery Photo?
Hi All: New member here with a question regarding the attached Griffon photo that was created from Google Maps. This photo has had me puzzled for quite some time. I had to combine several screen shots so that it was viewable in a decent resolution, but I assure you there is no trickery here.
Perhaps someone can answer the question of why there seems to be two trains in a seemingly impossible position. One of the trains is making its run thought the water, yet another train appears to be climbing just past that point (and the third train sits just outside the station).
I have a decent understanding of coaster safety systems. Years ago, for a school project, I had the pleasure of speaking with Ron Toomer about safety system designs, including the blocking system, and was fortunate enough to have had a personal inspection of LCN while the park was closed for the season for the same school project. Yet this photo has me perplexed.
It seems as though the two trains on the lower left are in the same block, perhaps in the same block as the third train awaiting entry to the station. Very odd. I had thought that the satellite photograph may be comprised of photos taken a second or two apart, resulting in three trains appearing instead of two. Maybe someone can provide the answer. Great website here - I am certainly glad to be a new member.
