For its first 15 years, Texas Tornado operated with a 28-passenger train built by O.D. Hopkins. In 2000, the original train was replaced by a new one especially designed and built by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company. The new train has lap bar restraints, not shoulder harnesses. At the present time, more wood coasters run with PTC trains than vehicles from any other train manufacturer, yet this is the only steel coaster that utalizes a PTC train.
