List of tallest subway elevators? : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread

I am trying to obtain a list of the world's tallest subway elevators. Portland is building 2 250-foot elevators in its new Washington Park subway station and I would like to know how that compares with the world's best. Can anyone point me to a comprehensive listing? Thanks.

Tallest (deepest) subway elevators

In San Fransico on the muni line under Twin Peaks There are 3 elevators the size of small rooms about 15x15 50 passengers as I recall the rise is about 400 feet

Not a comprehensive listing, but the Forest Glen metro station in the Washington, DC metro system (Maryland suburb of Silver Spring) was once described as the world's tallest subway elevato
