It appears that they have removed the concrete wall outside of Vortex’s station at the transfer table 

You sure? I don't see it....

You can see fresh dirt in the circled area next to the transfer table

It is crazy to realize that this will be the only time Vortex and Orion will be in the same picture together.

Crazy, I thought it might be SBNO for a bit

Probably will be. I think they are parting what what they can at this point.

This may explain what was seen on the web cam:

 

My guess is the parts are gonna go to Anaconda, possibly the trains too.

They can part one of the cars to me. I had this dream of turning nine of the cars into a go kart for one of my kids.

I just hope they do something, whether it be a plaque like Son of Beast, the ride deserves some kinda memorabilia

I can tell that they have removed part of the turntable, but can't tell if the have broken the full circuit.

Does anyone have a photo of what was removed while it was there. I see nothing

I think they are thinking the transfer track is gone.

Sad to see Vortex’s removal has already begun, still doesn’t feel real that it’s getting removed.

Do any of the CF owned Boomerangs still use Arrow trains?

According to RCDB it looks like The Bat still uses an Arrow train

It appears that the track leading into the station is gone.

Looks like the transfer track is just completely moved over, that's what they do when they remove the trains.

Yep, looks like both ready brakes are aligned with the transfer sheds.

Then I wonder where that piece of track they took off came from.

Going to be sad to see this iconic ride go down. I still remember going through my first ever inversion all those years back.

They were a piece of track that lead into the storage shed that was removable so it was easier for them to remove the trains. You can tell this piece of track wasn't traveled on much as they are no marks left from the wheels.
