The video above is just one example of the many like it that you can find on YouTube. All involve elevators that are simply filmed as a hobby. I came across this particular video after reading an article about an elevator enthusiast named Jacob Bachta, a freshman at Saint Louis University. There are some interesting pieces to the article such as: his YouTube Channel has more than 1,270 subscribers and two of his videos have more than 10,000 views.
Most of you who read this blog, or our website, probably work in the elevator/escalator industry in some fashion. So, it is interesting to see others outside of the industry so passionate about them. Not just in the design and architecture but also how they work. We all must be doing something right.
