Recorded on 9/1/23. We rode this elevator back in 2018 with Lisa and Karen. Let's see how this elevator is doing back in 2023!

Recorded on 6/8/24. This is another newer five star Hotel in New York City. These elevators have a rare European style chime to them.

Recorded on 1/6/24. We kicked off the 2024 railfanning season by doing another meetup with Adam and Mason! This time, William, my Dad and Big Butt Bear came along for this next trip. This was well worth the trip since I wasn't able to meetup with Adam (Garden State Railfan) in 2023. We did a majority of the railfanning at Scarborough which always has reliable train action. Saturday mornings are actually quite busy on the Hudson line! Particulary between Croton-Harmon and Grand Central. The super express used to operate in the evening, but now it runs in the morning. I think I would try to do another Saturday morning again. Afterwards, Adam and Mason lead us to Blauvelt to see some freight trains. We did manage to see one while we went out there. It was a great way to kickoff the 2024 railfanning season! Enjoy!'

Recorded on 9/1/23. This is the newest building on the campus. This elevator is a fantastic install! It runs flawlessly and is being maintained well.

Recorded on 11/10/23. This is the other set of elevators in the senate wing of the capital. These elevators have the pads up on them. I guess there were some senators moving in and out of the capital recently.

Recorded on 11/10/23. I have a treat for you all for the few videos! In 2017, I was actually here at the capital lobbying with the New York State PTA and meeting with assemblymen and state senators. I rode these elevators but wasn't able to film them due to time and how busy these elevators were when congress was in session. Last year, I came here after visiting the Corning Tower and it was a much better time to explore the capital and ride these awesome elevators! And with a much better camera too! These elevators were modernized with CJ Anderson equipment. However, the ornate cabs and design remain! You will not want to miss this series on this channel!

Recorded on 9/1/23. We rode the big elevator this time since we only rode the small elevator last time. Many of the elevators at this campus have this modernization. However, some of the elevators have different personalities to them.

Recorded on 4/14/18. Here is something very different for you all today! This is a video that dates back to my senior year of high school. I was on my last ever youth group retreat with my church and decided to do a video of what I thought was a cool vending machine. When I tried to do a video of the vending machine, problems started to arise. Beginning from not accepting dollar bills, a jammed dollar bill machine, deleting the amount of money I already put into the machine and more. Enjoy this unplanned extravaganza!

Recorded on 4/8/24. This was another high-priority elevator I wanted to check out while in Buffalo last month. Most of the videos from this trip are going live in 2025. However, I couldn't wait until 2025 to share my first-ever ride on a Schindler elevator with the rare low-pitched chimes. I ended up traveling six hours away from home to ride one of these, but I was incredibly happy to finally ride one of these! These elevators are from 2002. One of the elevators was broken, but thankfully, it was the one without chimes. If the elevator with the working low-pitched chimes were the elevator that was broken, this would have been a disappointing visit. Schindler discontinued the chime for better ADA compliance for the visually impaired who rely on chimes to know what direction the elevator is going in. Many elevators have had their low-pitched chimes replaced with high-pitched chimes. Still, I am very happy to see the low-pitched chimes live on with this elevator. Enjoy! STL Elevators, Diesel Elevators, Genesee Trains & Elevators, Elevatorman45, Floridian Elevators, Brandon and Brandon Miller have all filmed this elevator before. It's a popular elevator since the chimes are rare. Enjoy!

Recorded on 5/30/24. This is an office building I found on LoopNet. This is your standard 1980's Otis elevator.

Recorded on 4/12/18. Here is another throwback video to 2018! I still have a couple of videos from my old Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime phone. I do not miss not having image stabilization, lol! This is the former Elephant's Trunk Store in Mount Kisco. In 2021, Elephants Trunk did a massive downsize and moved to one of the retail spaces at 280 North Bedford Road (The building with the older Dover Impulse Elevator with the pink cab). In 2023, this building got converted into a multi tenant building. Currently a dentist is the only tenant in this building and they occupy the first and second floors. Yes even the entrance where the elevator is. So technically this building has "security" that is "temporary". Once more tenants move into the building, the dentist will have to reconfigure and we should be able to ride this elevator again. However, this elevator unfortuently got modernized since the building also recieved a pretty heavy rennocation. I am not sure when I will be able to return to this building to ride the modernized elevator since I have to wait for the dentist to not be the only tenant in this building because more tenants will turn this building into a usual multi tenant building. When this happens, you will all get a video of the new elevator. Until then, enjoy this video!

Recorded on 3/29/24. Earlier this spring, I revisited the Willowbrook Mall on my way to Pennsylvania to get more updated videos of the elevators since JCPenney has occupied the old Lord & Taylor space and brought the elevator back into service. While I was low on time on my way out, I noticed these Montgomery escalators. Since the escalators were Montgomery, I had to make a video of them. I love Montgomery! Enjoy!

Recorded on 4/8/24. Last month, I ventured out to the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area to see the total solar eclipse pass through. While up there, I found some time before the solar eclipse to ride some elevators in the Amherst/Williamsville area. This was my first stop since seeing this elevator was a VERY HIGH PRIORITY for me! This is my first ever United States circle button elevator! I rode some United States elevators back at Disney World, but they were either modernized or had different types of buttons that were not made by United States elevator. So, this elevator was a huge treat for me. I didn't want to leave Buffalo without seeing this elevator! The buttons are insanely satisfying to push. STL Elevators, Diesel Elevators, Brandon Miller, and Brandon have all ridden this awesome elevator, too. Enjoy!

Recorded on 8/4/23. Here is one of the oldest elevators in Grand Central Terminal. This elevator is actually quite small! Before the video we ran into a Ken who was incredibly rude to us because William was getting a video of the elevator shaft and the Ken said "Are you done f****** with the elevators?! Even worse he was a Metro North Railroad train operator that actually took us home on the Harlem Line. But at least we got this video in piece. Thankfully he didn't try to go after us for filming because Grand Central is tax payer funded public property so our photography rights are protected here. Enjoy the video!

Recorded on 8/4/23. This hotel was supposed to be demolished in 2020 and rebuilt but the lockdowns suspended that project so we got to see these elevators again! These elevators are interesting as they have a low rise and high rise elevator set but every elevator goes to the fitness center. Very efficient elevator system this hotel has! These elevators did get modernized multiple times but they are still awesome elevators.

Recorded on 8/4/23. This is a new elevator that takes you from the main terminal into the brand new Long Island Railroad terminal. This elevator has the cab design of the main elevators in the terminal. It is nice to see the contrast from the original terminal to the new terminal.

Recorded on 6/22/23. I finally got around to getting a 1080p ultra HD take of these elevators! According to William these are Canton elevators. These elevator have always ran fantastic and are well maintained. These are not the original elevators to this train station as these were installed in 2011 and replaced old Heights elevators. Unfortunately the person who filmed the old elevators is no longer on YouTube so we no longer have footage of those elevators.

Recorded on 2/24/24. Featuring William Scoufaras and Boston Elevators and Aviation. Here is the official kickoff to the February 2024 Boston trip! During my time in Boston, I spent a great amount of time with William and metup with Boston Elevators and Aviation while I was up there. This is one of the elevators we rode together as a trio. This is a beautiful hotel! This elevator connects Prudential Center to the hotel. I decided to not ride the main elevators with William and Nick because I don't enjoy hitch hiking on elevators. Especially in expensive hotels like this one. Stay tuned to William or Nick's channel for a video of those elevators. Anyway, enjoy!

Recorded on 7/28/23. Featuring William Scoufaras. I was surprised to find out that William never rode this elevator before. This is a pristine Dover elevator this office building has. This is probably one of the first elevators out there to have the world famous Dover buzz to it. No fire service either. Enjoy!

Recorded on 12/28/23. With a new job in 2023, I had a whole week off for Christmas break! So we made sure to do a little railfanning with the week off. We needed to do some shopping in the Newburgh area, so we took the opportunity to visit a new station that we have not been to before. New Hamburg! This is the second to last stop on the Metro North Railroad Hudson Line and it is a nice station located in the town of Wappingers Falls. Technically this is the Wappingers Falls Station just like Scarborough is technically the Briarcliff Manor Station and Philipse Manor technically being the Sleepy Hollow Station. You get all of the usual action here. Though I finally caught the Conrail Heritage Unit in this railfanning video. Enjoy!

Hi! My name is Wesley and this is a channel on elevators, trains, airplanes and hotel tours. I have been filming since 2010 and operated this channel since 2019. I keep almost all of my videos G rated so everyone can watch. No extreme profanity is used on this channel. My normal area of videos come from the following areas in the United States: Southeast New York, Southwest Connecticut, Northern New Jersey and Northeast Pennsylvania. I do have some videos from Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia, Washington DC, and Florida as well. As well as one video from Maryland. Right now I have boosted up the amount of train videos I make. But I still film elevators. So enjoy watching elevators, trains, airplanes and hotel tours on my channel! Be sure to subscribe if you enjoy my content.
