Woodstock's Express

A slow kiddie coaster like this one does not require an elaborate braking system.  Each car has a long metal strip between the rails.  Automobile tires powered by electric motors rub up against these strips to slow the train as it enters the station.  The same tires are also used to move the train out of the station.
