    It is not.

    I don't believe uncredited cut and paste jobs on a private web site with it's own set of rules are protected by "fair use." The FAQ warns against wholesale copying of copywritten material.

    I've never disputed the fact that grease "thins" in heat. I've disputed your claim and repeated defense that the tracks of Big Thunder are greased.

    Your link to a picture of the steel wheels you claim are used on Big Thunder leads to an "ERROR 404- FILE NOT FOUND"message.

    I'll leave all the other inaccuracies for others to discuss, I'm unsubscribing from this thread.
    So full of Disney Magic, my eyes are blue.

    But in stating this, you're taking my post out of context. I was responding specifically to the Atticbat post, which I quoted, and which stated the following:

    "Coster [sic] wheels have not been metal since the Matterhorn was built."

    My post responded to that, by showing current "coasters", in operation now, that by any definition have steel wheels.

    The post I quoted, and the response, were not speaking of Big Thunder Mountain's wheels in particular, and it's somewhat misleading to suggest otherwise.
