Description 99% done on the launch for my new coaster. It's semi-automatic and works pretty well. Just have to test it with the rest of the layout...;)
Uploading a video of it in action later.

What's the main launch mechanism?

A piece of latex tubing tethered below the launch and connected to the "Catch Car". The other side of the catch car is attached to the string you see on the 8 rod tube, which is wound up until the train turns the tire and pulls the gear away from the others.

Lol hope that ramble made sense. I'll upload more pics to the construction thread eventually.

Really cool and actually quite simple mechanism. Hopefully we can see a video soon!
