Mostly original

Many of the original parts are still present, although the controls have been upgraded to newer examples.

Although working, these are in various states of disrepair, and have the look of being fixed just enough to work rather than any care or consideration being given.

The floor numbering is somewhat unusual, as this building is located in the side of a steep hill. The car park entrance is on level 3 and there are two ground floors where the shops are.
