The Mine Train Roller Coaster is all about fast, smooth, twisted track, and can be improved considerably by adding tunnels.
In Real Life
Interestingly, the track of the Mine Train Coaster in RCT1 and RCT2 is the Vekoma-style mine train, while RCT3 uses the Arrow style (but keeps the Vekoma trains). Arrow's mine trains were famous for their hybrid look (steel track with wooden supports) and were featured on two instances in RCT2 using the Vekoma tracks. Six Flags Magic Mountain had theirs and Six Flags Great Adventure had the Runaway Mine Train. Vekoma's mine train was featured as Calamity Mine in Six Flags Belgium (Now Walibi Belgium). For verisimilitude in RCT1 and 2, you may wish to consider using the Hypercoaster for a mine train.
