I was just wondering, whatever happened to Corkscrew's blue train? Watching the ride when I went to the park last Tuesday and via the live cams, I have only seen the red and white trains running. Is the blue train currently in storage, off for maintenance, or what?
I've seen Mine Run run with 3 trains this year on occasion. You can tell because nearly every time the train will pause for a few moments on the second lift hill while it waits for the next block to clear. Unfortunately, Mine Ride's restraint setup makes the load/unload process unnecessarily long.

Probably only runs with 2 trains these days like MS, Mine Ride, ID and other rides.
Mean Streak usually runs 3 trains.

Corkscrew has been running two train op since 2011. Every season one train gets taken off and another put on. You'll see Blue and something next off season...

There's just no need for 3 train operation anymore. They usually stack with just 2 train operation so running 3 trains doesn't gain any extra capacity.
