Iron Rattler's Trains - Oh My My

Some new photos of the trains for Six Flags Fiesta Texas' Iron Rattler have surfaced, and my oh my, how nice are these?

You'll have to click on the larger version to get detail on this one.  The trains, created by Gerstlauer, are still in Germany waiting to be shipped to the park.  They look the same as those used on the New Texas Giant, only with some nice upgrades.

This bigger view shows that unlike the New Texas Giant, Iron Rattler's trains will not feature any decorative side panels - making the ride experience that much more free.  The snake head on the front car, and the rattler tail on the back, couldn't look better!

Six Flags Fiesta Texas actually opens for the 2013 season today, though Iron Rattler isn't ready quite yet.  For some details on all that's new at the park this year - besides Iron Rattler of course - check out this article.
