Hypersonic XLC

I witnessed one train roll-back during Hypersonic's opening weekend.  It just missed clearing the first hill by a couple of feet.  Gravity pulled it back down and these brakes brought it to a halt.  A couple of guys in S&S shirts hanging around Hypersonic moved pretty quickly when the train rolled back.  After a few quick checks, XLC was back in operation less than 18 minutes later.  In later years, a reset after a rollback was even less of a big deal.
