runnaway escalator : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread

Anyone have the scoop on the runnaway escalator(s) in the news? What happened? How? What kind of controls were on it?

Here's a better link for elevator/escalator accident/investigation in the news media...

I see they want to do a load test by placing weights on each step...

I hope whoever does that work installs safety restraint cables before proceeding... (to absolutely limit runaway to a few inches)

cheers ...... murray
