God forbid you paint it. Not even just visually, but it's generally good to minimize exposure to wear and weathering before painting. Paint is more than visual, it helps protect the metal.

They should soon I imagine. It was probably most important to get the rail swapped in with minimal downtime. They can paint it in the next few days.
 
Just seems weird to run the trains on it before you paint it. If you have paint on hand (which you should have for quick patches of sensitive areas), just throw it on. Why wear it before painting, makes no sense to me.
 
Man, safety protocols were sure different back then it seems, unless I'm just not seeing it neither the news guy nor the painter were using a proper harness.

Also, is it common for paint rollers to be used?

They were not wearing one going up the lift hill but it appears that the painter had one on in other shots.

Rollers were seen in heavy use in all of BGW's recent repaints that were visible during operating hours.
 
With the goings on with Nessie and hopefully a new ride experience coming. I tracked down some vintage merch and had a graphics designer pull the images to have some shirts remade, trademark means they can’t be resold but I thought the parks fan’s community would like access to the images incase anyone else wants to have some new “old” Nessie merch

I think its funny how much less menacing Nessie in the logo looks now, compared to the old one.
