It is not boarded up right under the station. The video that I posted above would still work with the elevator lift before the station and would explain that strange opening below the load station.im saying they already boarded it up so why would they do that then cut out the wood after?
That, and I think they'll be trying to keep the stories at a constant size. It'd look a bit weird otherwise (or they'd have to do some false floors, or something). It'll be interesting to see how they support that track, as a train sat in the station will be a sizable load - and I'd be surprised if they just support that from secondary steelwork.^ That was literally going to be my exact post. There's not enough room for a transfer/maintenance shed under there. I'm guessing the reason it may be slightly deeper than other ones is to take into account the extra spinning mechanism that undoubtedly adds a slight height to the train.
So a vertical transfer like on Pegasus at Europa Park, then? Makes sense, as it's a Mack...Received confirmation from my source. The openings on the right are NOT for the maintenance bay. It will be below the station like I stated above. Those holes are purely cosmetic and will make sense when the theming is completed.
