      I’ve heard that as well. I have my doubts, though. Double-E was a bottom drive/tension with the entire terminal on tracks, rather than a fixed vault like this one. The return, obviously, would have been fixed, so they would have to have found a Heron carriage for this install. Lastly, these aren’t the towers that were on old E- they were the same as the ones over on the Jane side like Challenger. I get that Yan added the lifting gantries but the crossarms still aren’t the same. Maybe they got the chairs from us.
