Slough town centre lifts - part 1

Brunel Bus Station Car Park.

There are three lifts one end, and two on the other.
The main lifts go to a grotty basement, with an underground walkway to the other side of the road towards the Queensmere Shopping Centre and High Street.
The underground walkway appears to be used by the homeless to ask for 'spare' money.

These are Express Lifts, but presumable modernised in the 90s sometime.
On the east side, only 1 out of 3 lifts is working. On the top floor, you can hear typical old Express relay control gear, including floor selector operating - so the modernisation must have just been car interiors (yeah, nice job too!)

On the other side of the car park, the ground floor lift lobby smells like it has been used as a toilet for a long, long time. Even the floor of the lift is sticky - yuch!

Check out the alarm panel above the lifts on the ground floors - there is a small window which produces a mechanical red 'flag' (probably a red disc) when the alarm button is activated. The 'slide to reset' switch is actually mechanical - it just pushes the red flag back, so that only a clear while window can be seen. I suppose this way if the alarm was activated, the red flag would remain even if the power failed until it's manually reset.
