Introduction: Knex Roller Coaster Station V2
This is version 2 of my roller coaster station, in standard pieces. It is in Screamin' Serpent style, instead of Vertical Vengeance style like the original. It's very basic, but it can always be modified to have a better roof, walkways, etc. It's meant to be added to your roller coaster, so the 2 outside strands of tubing don't have to be a certain length and end where the track ends. I just did that for looks :-).
Hope you like it!

Step 1: Parts List
Before we begin, let's gather all the parts we'll need.
small blue gear-1
blue (metallic) clip-2
3 pieces of tubing; the shorter piece should be 21 inches long (middle strand).
Screamin' Serpent cars
When you've gathered all of these pieces, it's time to move on to step two!
Step 2: The Front Section
This is the longest step; you'll build the front that holds the motor and gears. There are five parts; A,B,C,D, and E. After you build those, you'll combine all of them and finish the front.
Step 3: The Back
Build parts A and B, and then combine them.
Step 4: The Track
Don't worry about tubing or parts in this easy step. But try to space everything out like it is in the pictures.
Step 5: The Boarding Platform
The boarding platform consists of parts A and B. After those are built you'll combine them.
Step 6: Assembling Steps 2-5
Put steps 2-5 together to complete step 6.
Step 7: Tubing and Chain
Now you'll add the tubing and chain. Attach the middle strand of tubing first, and then the chain. After that you'll be able to put the two outside strands on.
Step 8: The Top
In this step you'll build the top and then attach it to the model.
Step 9: Finished!
You are now done with version 2 of my roller coaster station! Add it to a coaster, and have fun!
