    Dumb question but I wanted to know if this is what I've heard called a "B&M ball"? I assume it's for track inspection? I was on a solo mission at Knotts today at it was sitting in the storage bay for Silver Bullet. I figured I'd snap a pic and ask you guys once I got home. Sorry for the crappy photo. I didn't bring my big boy camera today. Thanks in advance.

    Yup that looks like an inspection ball good spot. :)
    They are indeed used for track inspection and I assume are self driven with an onboard motor.

    Thanks for the info @roomraider ! Appreciate it. Wish I could've snapped a better photo of the inspection ball because the trains pass super close to it upon returning to the station. I could see the joysticks, restraint harness and what not quite well. The nerd in me got intrigued obviously.
