I for one am glad John posted one picture in this thread, as I missed the other thread. As far as I know, Theme Park Review isn't about how many different threads we can start and how many people will look at your photos. Your topic discusses Python's removal, and thats exactly what that picture is about. And I highly doubt its spamming, as he's not going to get any money or anything like that if he has more views to his thread than you do.
All clear....

Dispatch, enjoy your ride.

I think the most gory of the pictures are gone. I would have felt worse about seeing a half a corkscrew. The supports on the old corkscrews and for the old loops like Lochness look really cool. I appreciate Python for being a classic historic piece. I could imagine the joy of patrons when the corkscrews and early loops were revolutionary. The coasters have jumped leaps in development and execution that make us more easy to dismiss our classic pieces. Python - Thank you for your service. It was hard to ride, but I'm glad I got the credit.

Certainly didnt take much care in its removal. I assume it is headed to a local scrap yard. Something like $10 a ton. It looks like either they used a metal bucket that will cut through the tubes and possibly they are torching. Looks like a machine just clamped on and snaped the track in half.
Oh well. Wish I could have gotten a better look but the construction fences they have are huge and cant see over them..
