Your escalator does what now?

Steplesselevator
I had a bit of a surprise when I wandered into a shopping mall, due to the escalators not having any steps.
As it turns out, this is so you can move between floors with a large shopping trolley. In case you were wondering, the trolleys lock magnetically to the escalator so you can't "accidentally" squish someone below you with ten gallons of coke or whatever.
They only get four stars out of five as a result. Still pretty neat though.
