“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.’”

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?
