“An escalator can never break, it can only become stairs. You will never see an escalator out of order sign, just ‘escalator temporarily stairs — sorry for the convenience.’”
– Mitch Hedberg
It’s already been fixed, but the other day the handrail came off the guide rail at Church St. station. Interestingly, the rubber rail is VERY heavy. There’s a wheel at the top moves the handrail (perhaps there’s another at the bottom) but for the most part it looks like it just slides on a rail. Who knew?
