Recorded on 6/10/22. These are some very nice elevators at this very nice office building. These reminded me of Northern Westchester Hospital in a way since this is a similar Series 2 Modernization. The cabs are neat too. I believe this is a modernization but I am not 100% sure.
Recorded on 6/3/22. Me and Lisa took a trip out to see the Mystic Aquarium since she wanted to show me this amazing aquarium. I loved everything aquarium and highly recommend coming here! This elevator goes up to the Sea Lion Show theater as well as a couple of other smaller exhibits. This is a standard Otis elevator that gets the job done.
Recorded on 6/1/22. I came here to do some shopping and noticed this elevator. This is the Croton-On-Hudson location which is very close to the Croton-Harmon Train Station. Unlike the ShopRite on Route 6 in Corltandt, this is an older ShopRite and this location has a public elevator! The route 6 location goes into an employees only area and has a Schindler HT Elevator. This elevator also goes up into an employees only area, however the only restrooms in the store are also on the second floor making this a public elevator. So I was very happy to actually ride this elevator. This elevator is not original to this store as this is an older ShopRite store from what I believe to be the 1990s. This is a very nice elevator and it has Red Atole Buttons. This elevator did jolt both times going upstairs so I don't think this elevator get's used a lot. Enjoy!
Recorded on 5/19/22. These are some Armor elevators that were modernized by Midland. The modernization is pretty generic. However, these elevators are fairly quick and they have an instant door close feature.
Recorded on 5/19/22. These are considered the low rise elevators of the Corporate Towers. This section is part of the Corporate Towers. All of the lower floors are all for the Radison Hotel. What is strange is that only one car back in the Corporate Tower services the Hotel's Ballroom. While one of these elevators does serve the basement, this section of the basement is an employee only section. So are the Corporate Tower elevators unlocked between B & L on weekends or when events in the Ballroom take place? Seems like a strange setup. Though this proves the Radisson Hotel is not original to this building.
Recorded on 4/20/22. These elevators have epic motors! The left elevator for some reason opens a little bit and revels before opening fully on the bottom floor. Interesting to see Floors 01 and 02 as well. I liked these elevators a lot!
Recorded on 4/14/22. While 500A elevators are awesome, these have been getting neglected lately. The left elevator has been broken since January 2022 and the car I rode is vandalized.
This was something I wanted to catch for a long time but never had an opportunity to do so. Yesterday when I got out of church I noticed a Harlem Line train that was making it's way to Yankees East 153rd Street Station for a Yankee Game instead of Grand Central Terminal. Sometimes trains on the Harlem and New Haven Lines will operate to Yankee Stadium for special game day service. Yesterday I finally had an opportunity to catch this game day special and what luck it was an M3 train! I was happy to finally catch a game day train and even happier that it was an M3. This game made all local stops from Southeast to Bronxville (Excluding Bedford Hills, Valhalla and Tuckahoe) and then express right to Yankees East 153rd Street Station. Enjoy the video!
Recorded on 6/28/21. Unlike the other two hotels I visited earlier, this place actually has a fifth floor. The fifth floor is a condominium so it's locked off. This place appears to be a mix of motel guest rooms and condos. This elevator is pretty nice.
Recorded on 10/27/21. I am very happy to see that is garage is being used for both Metro North and the Avalon Apartments. So we got to check out the new elevators in this new garage! These elevators were installed in 2021. These are standard but nice running elevator. The cabs are very tall which is cool. The left elevator had the famous Metro North Petting Zoo Smell to it which I don't understand how that works, lol! A few trains are seen in this video as well. Enjoy!
Recorded on 7/2/21. This was the final set of elevators I filmed during my 2021 Summer Vacation Trip. I was going to do a round trip on both elevators but I was running low on time so I rode elevator one up and rode down elevator two. Just like the ICONA Diamond Beach Hotel, only one of the elevators was very busy which was elevator one in this case. This appears to be a newer Hotel in Wildwood since a lot of these Hotels/Motels are older. Enjoy!
Recorded on 3/15/22. After some more phased reopening, I was finally able to visit the library here. These elevators are basically similar to most of the elevators here. Half of the elevators on the campus are locked off so I was glad these elevators were not. I still do not know what brand of elevators these are. I believe these elevators were modernized at some point.
Recorded on 3/10/22. This is a very interesting Hotel. This elevator is located in the new lobby which was built onto the Hotel in the 2000s. The rest of the Hotel is from the 1970s and this elevator connects the new lobby to the rest of the hotel. This hotel did get renovated and the cab in this elevator was renovated too. Which was strange since this is a newer elevator. Enjoy!
Recorded on 2/24/22. I actually found this building completely by accident. This is a Vintage Building in this Vintage Building. I did forget to look on the Door Track for a brand that this elevator could be. It appears to have been modernized twice based on the Epco and Monitor Buttons. Despite that this elevator still has qutie a bit of character to it. I believe the motor is original to this elevator. I still found this elevator to be neat. Enjoy!
Recorded on 2/10/22. This is the new elevator in this building. This elevator was super busy when I was here. I did manage to get a silent round trip though. Enjoy!
Recorded on 2/11/22. This is a nice elevator in a nice rest stop. Though the fate of this elevator is unknown since a major renovation is expected to take place. It's to bad since this old building is beautiful.
Recorded on 6/28/21. I finally had an opportunity to go check out some more elevators in Wildwood besides the Regal Plaza Resort Hotel that I stay at. We start off at the hotel two blocks down which is the second tallest building in Wildwood Crest. These elevators have been modernized by Otis. I am not sure what these elevators were originally.
Recorded 11/21/21. While I was waiting for my Amtrak Train to head home, I headed up to the platform an hour early to see if I can catch any frieght trains. I was able to catch this one! It was well worth it. I hope I get to do a full railfanning video of this line at some point in the future. Enjoy!
Recorded on 2/3/22. These elevators are 10 years old and the right elevator has already received new buttons. They are nicer though. What's up with the mystery button on the call station? Lol.
(6/2012 - 10/2021). Here is a special compilation I made of P32 Genesis trains that I filmed during Rush Hour on the Harlem and New Haven Lines. I made this compilation since it can be harder to film these trains when it is not a weekend or rush hour. I figured this would be a special compilation to reflect on these catches that make it totally worth railfanning during rush hour on the weekdays on these two lines. The Harlem Line did have two directs on weekends but that service ended in 2018. Enjoy the video!
Recorded on 9/7/21. Featuring Garden State Railfan & Central Jersey Railfan 104. I finally was able to organize another railfanning trip with Adam (Garden State Railfan). I met with him and his friend Mason (Central Jersey Railfan) up in Brewster and we basically did a lot of station hoping along the Wassaic Branch. We were the second group to do this and THIS is how you do a full and complete railfanning trip on the Wassaic Branch. It does require a lot of driving. GallardoFreak888 and his friends were the first to do a railfanning video like this on this line back in 2013 except we started on electrified territory. Great video to check out by the way. We started off in Brewster to try to catch some M3's since Adam wanted to try to catch some of those trains. We did make a pitstop in Southeast and then it was all station hoping from there on. We finally got to see the return of the nonstop service from Grand Central Terminal to Wassaic! This was the main reason me and Adam wanted to do this trip since this service was suspended since March 2020. This past September the MTA brought back 2 out of the 4 Wassaic trains for the PM rush hour. The same concept applies for the AM rush hour as well. This was a great day and you do not want to miss out the action in this video. We put a lot of time and driving to make this video happen. Enjoy
Recorded on 1/19/22. On the way home from our big railfanning trip last winter we made a pitstop at this mall. Unfortunately this mall does not appear to be doing to well. Macy's is gone and there are quite a bit of empty stores. This Boscovs store used to be a JCPenney Store. This elevator was originally a Dover that got modernized with GAL. Boscovs has a contract with Kone so when Boscovs came in they modernized this elevator again with Kone. This is a good elevator overall. Enjoy!
Recorded on 1/11/22. Valhalla truly does have a lot of cool elevators! This is the second building of the Summit Office Center. This is the newest of the buildings since this building is from 1990 and this building has Dover Elevators. The other two buildings have Westinghouse elevators. I do like how the cabs are the exact same as the other buildings even though the elevator brand is completely different. These run well too. Enjoy!
Recorded on 12/16/21. This is a very old building that was built in 1938. Empire College occupies the first floor of this building. This elevator is obviously an add on but it is very tall!
