The extremely noisy escalator at the CH Metro: Or is it a colony of bats?

If you've been to the Columbia Heights Metro lately, you've probably noticed how loud the west escalator is: it screeches like crazy, and to me sounds like a colony of bats or some horror movie music. TBD links to a video of how noisy it is, and they note you can actually hear it outside the station, down the block.

But considering how rarely the CH Metro escalators are actually working, maybe we shouldn't complain too much?


  1. I heard it yesterday evening. Hey, at least they are working. I hope I didn't speak too soon!

  2. I think it sounds like a haunted carousel.

  3. I just assumed that Philip Glass had made the move to installation art...

    It sounds like an apocalyptic troop of pipers - perhaps a subversive comment about the decay of civic and civil infrastructure as accompanied by Tea Party revelry.
