    Hey @brodie-shepherd – sounds like you’re really interested in elevators. What intrigued you most about these ones? 😊

      That’s neat, with the serial numbers ending in ‘A’ ‘B’ ‘C’, it makes me think the three lifts were installed at the same time, and ordered in the same batch, perhaps. What do you think @brodie-shepherd ?
