    I'm mostly curious about at what point in the ride to the vehicles recharge. I'm assuming at Load because that's the time they are still the longest, but you never know...

    Unload. It's the only time they're sitting still while actually resting on the floor.

    At Load they're one floor up inside the shaft, which would require building all of the charging systems into all four VVC's or attached to the shaft walls in some way.

    Here is a photo of the load panel.
    I assume the buttons are:
    E stop
    Ride Stop
    Doors
    Status Lights
    Dispatch
    Prerecorded Announcements

    Don't know, just my guess. Anybody else know or want to share?

    Top right is E-stop. As far as I know, that would stop the entire ride system on that half of the building, but possibly only that shaft.

    Red button above bottom right is a lift hold button. As soon as the load doors open, the CM pushes it down (it stays down). This holds the lift in place no matter what. To dispatch, the CM must pull the button back up and then press Advance, which is the bottom right.


    There are no door controls that I know if, though there is a manual physical release above the door.

    Upper left is communication, each button connects the phone to a different station in-building.

    What would the buttons do under the estop? Also what about the rotary switch on the left of the estop?
