Narrow Escalator in Copley when getting off train, How wide?

Post by Ken Murikumo » Mon Mar 23, 2015 7:48 pm

Howdy, folks. Been a VERY long time since i posted. Anyways, down to business:

That super narrow escalator that brings you into Copley place when you get exit the train station. Does anybody know the actual width? I've got a dolly/carriage i built for my very unwieldy costume. It is just shy of 19 inches at the smaller of the two dimensions. I worry this may be too wide.

Strange question, yes, and i have prepped contingencies in case.

There is an elevator near those escalators that you can use just so you know. I think you can use the escalator but just giving you the heads-up just in case.

Hmm... I though there was an elevator there for legal reasons, but i've never actually seen it. Oh, well. Trial and error. I'll keep my eyes pealed when i get there.

Thanks friend!

Found map of Copley Place. Unfortunately it doesn't show the street level area.
But from the map of level one, I surmise that the elevator is to the left of the escalators when one is facing them.

Is it a little late to post on here? Anyway, I was walking in the area (to pick up my badge) and did a quick measurement (as in with my feet). I will say the escalator is around 20-22" wide. As for the elevator, there is one there but it does not go into the mall. The best way to explain this is the stairs from the train station is at ground level and the mall area is on the 3rd level. The elevator only goes from ground to the 2nd level.
