Re: Non-reversible escalators?

While I have no expertise on the specific units there, I can pass along the following.
Recently asked booth occupant at my closest BART station why since the up escalator was OOS the down one had not been reversed. Got the same can't be done story. I, however remember that when that station opened the escalator in that location was "on call" that is waiting to either go up or down depending on which treadle someone stepped on. BART had many of those until the day one hiccupped and changed direction with many pax on it headed up. No deaths but a number went to the hospital. The treadles were removed and the escalators mostly are either up or down, but I know many are still reversible as I use stations where they are set to ease rush hour direction of travel.
