The Freight Elevator is a special place in Xenoblade Chronicles. It is an elevator connecting floor B3F of the Ether Mine to the north end of Freight Road south of Colony 6. Its endpoints in the Ether Mine and Colony 6 are Locations, and there is a Landmark partway between on the mine's GF.
After a battle with Xord on the lowest floor of the Ether Mine, the party decides to exit via the Freight Elevator. It stops partway up and they are attacked again by Xord, who is damaged from his fall into the ether river. When he is defeated, he falls down the elevator shaft and an explosion destroys the Ether Mine's Central Pit as the elevator resumes its ascent, after which the entire Central Pit is permanently inaccessible.
