This is my new B&M coaster named Kiwi.  What makes this coaster unique is its trains are four cars long and the station will have two trains loading along with a launched lift hill at 20mph.

Cool concept, but why are you using 4 car trains? Wouldn't be necessary unless the coaster is very, very small or you have an airtime section with a very small radius (ala Eurofighter's drop). Other than that, I want to see what you'll make with the rest of the layout. Nice looking so far!

I think you've already answered that question.  The layout is being kept small and also because the raidus on some turns is also tiny.

Currently redoing this coaster!  This is still a B&M floorless with a small footprint however I now have changed the launch to a straight 55 mph section and its first element is a pretzel loop (may change it to a batwing) with trains of 5 cars though I may change it to 8 (unsure of how heavy Floorless trains are compared to Wings).  So far I have made it in FVD++.
