It won't of actually been taken down even though the running/guide wheels are off. It will be attached to the pylons by cable or chain. When it was originally thread they would have first thread a small rope by putting through the wheels on one pylon then going back down to the ground and climbing up the next pylon and putting it through the wheels on that pylon. They would then tie a bigger rope to the other end and pull it through, slowly they would increase the rope size until they actually pulled the cable through. As you can guess very time consuming and that is why sometimes they use helicopters to take it the whole length of the system much quicker, but I'm sure AT have never done this.
