    Features of the "Rider Protection Rail System" are as follows: 
        1. Posts are not exposed, as the panel covers the entire gooseneck. 
        2.
    Panel extends to the end of gooseneck and not down the posts, so smaller shadows appear on the track.
        3.
    Foam rubber donut where panel is attached to posts, provides sound suppression and also resilience in case of an accident.
        4.
    If a rider should fall, the panel's shape will allow him to roll onto the infield and not bounce on to the main track.
        5. All posts are padded.
