Alpine Bobsled

The good news is that multiple cars can run on this track at once.  The car on the left is climbing the lift hill, while the car partially visible on the right is passing a set of block brakes.  These brakes can stop a train if it is getting too close to the preceding train.  But the bad news is that the ride's hourly capacity is rather low since each car only holds eight passengers.
