I'm pretty sure that it does, at least they had it last time I was there (August 2010).

That is good to know...it always has a big line when I am there and I am always riding alone...

Have we had a chance to compile a list of DLR and WDW rides that continue to do single rider?

Not sure, off the top of my head for DLR.

Indy
Soarin'
CA Screamin might (they have the signage but never seen it used)
Toy Story use to but it appears to be gone

Yeah, I know Toy Story doesn't have it anymore for some reason. I was a little sad to hear that.

Does Test Track not have a single rider line anymore?

Unless it is scrapped in a refurb, they will always have a single rider line at TT.
We are all a little weird
And life's a little weird,
And when we find someone whose
Weirdness is compatible with ours,
We join up with them and fall in
Mutual weirdness and call it Love.”

Did Test Track actually have its own single rider line like they had originally built into Mission Space when it opened? I remember one time being a single rider at TT and they lead us to the side of the building and took us through service entrance into the building.

I've only walked alongside the regular queue for the single rider line...but it might have been different before I first went. Were you on a special tour perhaps?

When TT original opened it did have a single rider line. I was there when It opened. I remember because of so many technical difficulties they had to keep pushing back the opening. I thought it would never open. I also remember when it did open it worked for about 75% of the time until the bugs were worked out.

The grizzly river run has a single rider also. It's not advertised but if you walk up to the cast members and tell them, they just send you down the exit.

That is good to know! When we were there in December it was so cold, I just walked right through the queue and onto a raft with others who had already gone around two or three times. This info could come in handy in the warmer months though!!

It was like that when I was there back in Nov 2003 - walk-on, but I was the only person on the raft...

I guess not many people are crazy enough to get soaked when it is colder :?
Did you end up getting more or less wet because you were all alone?

Well... for locals it's too cold to go but for people from the colder parts of the US it's still shorts and t-shirt weather in January.
