    Longqing Gorge near Beijing,

    China

    These are reportedly the longest

    series of escalators in the world. Iam told that

    there are eight sets of escalators

    (258m in 8 sections) housed in this

    'dragon'...

    A Peelle Motorstair in the Sheridan Village

    (circa 1955) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, U.S.A.

    Patrick A. Carrajat informs me that, "This is

    the original Peelle with coil handrails.The coil handrail was composed of a round

    rubber bellows over which the metal coil

    was fixed. In the photo you can see

    sections in silver and sections in black, this

    was

    the common way of setting these up. The

    coil handrail proved hard to hold and was

    replaced with the bracelet handrail which

    used a sectional bellows that came in 10 ormore different lengths which were attached

    to a chain via special clips. The actual

    plastic bracelet inserts were shaped like the

    top of a conventional handrail and you

    simply popped them onto the bellows. The

    inserts were available in many colors

    including black, silver, gold, red, etc." Thank

    You Patrick!

    Quite a few flat steps in London, United Kingdom

    This makes it hard to see all the way to the other end when

    stopping and starting the unit. You really need another

    person or a barricade at the opposite end for everyone's safety.
