Recorded on July 16, 2017 This is the main Promenade elevator (the side one is a Boral modernised by Schindler) This was originally a Liftronic Unitronic FST, much like elevators 14 and 15. In 2017, this got modernised into this Schindler 5500. (Yes, I say 6500 in the video because I thought that was the model for elevators modernised into 5500s.) Schindler have done this mod so well that it doesn't feel like the crappy elevator it used to be, replacing the fixtures (were Dewhurst US91-15/US91 [LOPs]), hall lanterns (were Salient/Dewhurst Triangle), indicators (were Dewhurst indicators that didn't work), the door operators (were Sematic door operators used on Liftronic elevators), sped the elevator up and quickened the levelling, removed the loud brakes on stop, kept the doors and cab (fixtures are placed where the old ones went), and added a voice (Asian, unusally, lacks Door opening/closing announcements and has directional announcements).
