    It will only have one train for now, but the park has an option to buy a second one later.

    Ah right. Thanks @Coaster Hipster!
    I agree! They remind me a bit of Switchback's trains, as I believe those resembled a train too.

    I remember a few years ago after riding Roar-O-Saurus hoping that more of these GG family woodies would appear. It's awesome to see that happening since then.

    Looks like they're trying to open this by the end of the month

    Seems that the train uses the exact same front as Switchback, just with a glossier finish.

    Is that not just a photo of Switchback used as marketing for Timber? Considering the ride's still not done and 100% not testing yet?

    Wow, by the end of the month seems ambitious. Still think this looks like the perfect addition for this park, hope it does well for them.

    Pretty sure @Pear is just comparing the marketing image (which is using Switchback) to the photo CoasterHipster posted further up this page of the Wood Express trains?

    Yep I just compared the two and saw that they used the same mold for the front.
