IMO, WDW missed an oppprtunity here. How about new reimagined vehicles? Something more fitted with TL, I don't know, like rockets or mini Mars rovers for example.
Instead, they chose the cheaper, easier route.

Also address the fumes and noise issues.

The basic scope of the ride would remain unchanged giving fans a refreshed experience.
I've never heard anyone complain about the 'fumes' as they walk by the Speedway........on the other hand, there are those NASCAR fans.....

Indeed. The Contemporary wasn’t just randomly placed where it was.
Out of all the mk resorts, the Contemporary has turned from a pseudo futuristic (by 1970's standards) look, to pretty much an Ikea designed UK Holiday Inn... I wish I could like it more, but it's just meh. The only thing 'cool' about it is the monorail passthru and its physical location. We stayed at BLT last month, and while the room was nice and all, it just feels, so, contemporary, lol. The resort scent blasting thru the lobby is nearly overpowering, as if the resort is overcompensating for its lack of 'it factor'.

But we solved that problem by buying resale at Poly, so we'll still be on the monorail loop for our youngsters.

I’ve heard a few things but Roger is in pieces and will leave Wednesday. Hopeful WED will be back by December.
That honestly surprises me. Unless they’ve completed restoration on some locomotives, the shops at Strasburg are packed. I wouldn’t think that they’d be able to get to Roger until Walter is finished. Who knows. Keep your eyes peeled on Wednesday then.

What sections on the west side were renovated? Didn't hear that they were doing work on that side.
From what I can tell, all the tracks were replaced on the west side, with the exception of maybe the frontierland station and splash mountain tunnel. I've seen evidence of rail construction all the way back to the north side of Rivers of America.

But I could be wrong. I do not have much WDW rail knowledge.

I think RGS #20 is back in Colorado now. So that would free up 1 narrow gauge engine space! Ha.
