Some of the track that was removed was cut up in small (2-3 ft.) pieces and sold on eBay. A lot probably went to a recycler.

They're being sent to Lake Compounce and will be reconstructed for the 2002 season as a shuttle looper.

I heard they're going to combine them with spare parts of Windjammer for CP's 2002 coaster called, "Windspammer".
LoL! Sorry, bad joke...

Why not just melt them down and use it for a future coaster.
The track itself was rough, so why salvage it when you can just recycle it and turn that molted metal into new track for Arrow Dynamics???

Dawg Byte, they won't do that because it is not Arrow property. That would be like taking your old Pentium II and having Intel melt the material (theoreticall). They won't because it isn't thiers, but yours. The track is Kennywood's, not Arrow's.
Next up: Stupid human tricks! Followed by: Stupid pet tricks!
Why can that never happen?

The track is neither Kennywood's nor
Arrow's anymore. It has met its final demise somewhere in the Pittsburgh area and may well have found new life by now as an Iron City Beer can or replacement fender for your car.
Could you describe
i am a beast from kennywood

I am sure kennywood will use them for a little coaster at idile wild. The park has been quite for a long time.

Why Arrow? Why not another nice B&M machine? ;)
