Introduction: K'nex Roller Coaster: Twisted Steel

Twisted Steel is a K'nex roller coaster, automated with LEGO EV3 Mindstorms. It was built over the course of several months. It features three inversions: A loop, heartline roll, and a corkscrew. It has a lift, and brake run, complete with catwalks. The station is fully automated, with station gates that open and close.This was my first roller coaster with tube supports.

Could you give more insight in the coaster? For instance the opening/closing mechanism of the station gates. I'd appreciate that, and I think others would too.

I didn't take any pictures of the gates and the mechanism, but I will soon be starting up my next ride, which I'll make sure to take lots of pictures, and I will make a tutorial for the automatic gates when I make them.

You will receive way more recognition, if you included more pics and a full description! :-) Nice job anyways
