Gold Rusher
After leaving the station, trains roll over the transfer track and pass by two siding tracks where trains can be stored.  Four trains are used on the ride, but when I took these pictures, only two trains were operating while the two empty trains sat on these sidings.

Long skid brakes can be seen on the center track and the transfer track on the left.  When trains need to stop, these pads are raised up and rub against similar pads mounted under the cars.
