During the off-season

During the off-season would they take the cable off of Delta Flyer/Eagles Flight and Southern Cross or just take off the cars?

Delta Flyer got put on the track in an extended portion of the station, covered and secured with general security kinds of locks, lock outs, cotter pins and canvases.
Southern Cross were stored in the then "undeveloped" 600 area, same manner. If a gondola needed major work, it got pulled and sent to the facilities mall. Hope it helps
