The amount of detail everywhere with Baron looks incredible, and the coaster itself is starting to come to life!

That is looking utterly fantastic, especially that theming!

Baron is complete and is testrunning, it does look good, I just don't understand how the holding break will work, as the lifthill chain is continous from the lift to the drop.

That does look very stunning, I see what you mean by the holding drop, but I think B&M have probably thought out a system for how it would work otherwise wouldn't they be taking a bit of a risk with just the one chain? - The alternative aspect is might it not have the holding drop and just stop horizontally at the top of the lift, this I doubt but it's just an alternative thought though.

That looks absolutely stunning! Flows so well and in a way has a very similar start to Swarm with the Dive loop/Immelman going straight into the zero-g!

To answer the question about the holding break, it is most likely that the chain takes the cart to the holding brake where the car would swap onto a separate chain which will then hold the car in place. This would be done in a similar way to when there has to be 2 separate chains on a lift-hill where the car swaps chains almost immediately. There could also be a short crossover period with the car on both chains.
