Late visit to Blackpool Pleasure Beach

With only this and next weekend left of the operating season the preparation for winter is well under way, with rides closing or running at reduced capacity.
A fenced off section of car park containing parts of rollercoaster trains being stored, some of which are covered in protective sheets. The exposed ones can be identified as belonging to Nickelodeon Streak and the Big One. A block of wood painted orange on three sides with a tag reading "Nickelodeon Streak Wood: This is a genuine piece of wood from the Nickelodeon Streak located in Nickelodeon Land. It was built in 1933 and was known at the Roller Coaster until 2010."
A view of the station of the Big One looking down through the running track to the maintenance bay. Only the rear half of the train down there is present.
