Here we have 3 lifts - 2x passenger lifts from the late 80s/early 90s and a service lift from the 60s/70s that hasn't been updated at all.
But filming these wasn't quite good enough. It's always worth climbing those extra stairs at the top of any stairwell. I'm not even sure if the motor room door 'had' a lock on it at all! It was open, and it's my pleasure to show you around this delicious motor room!
Once again, another Schindler 'wheel' selector. This one is a little different from the one I filmed before: watch?v=1AyLU7KHlS8 The one in this hotel is much higher, so that "inside" the selector there are more roller switches that represent each floor, and turn on or off depending which way the selector is turning - facinating stuff!!! There's loads more also - those 80s lifts are in the motor room also, so I've filmed those also (love this Schindler chime!)
Oh, one more thing, sorry about the cheap sound effects! haha :D
Enjoy, as I filmed it for you guys! That stairwell was creepy by the way - see the dodgy handrail also!!
