    Just loaded up cactus canyon stage 3. The two spawns are facing each other and fairly close together, and the cart sort of zig-zags through the area between them. There's also a train that runs through the middle of the map periodically.

    The final stage has a really interesting capture mechanic. The game doesn't end as soon as the payload gets to the final point. Instead, when blu pushes the payload to the semi-final point, it is lifted up to the train tracks. Then, blu has to push it onto the train tracks, and defend it until the train comes around to hit the payload, at which point blu wins. Red can push the cart back a short way before the train comes, though.
