Problematics | One step at a time on Metro escalator

It would be a stretch to describe what follows as an original puzzle, but I have tinkered with a couple of existing forms of puzzles and merged them into one using my own variables.
Puzzles based on moving escalators have been around for, possibly, as long as escalators themselves. It would thus be a stretch to describe what follows as an original puzzle, but I have tinkered with a couple of existing forms of such puzzles and merged them into one using my own variables.
To solve this, what you need to bear in mind is that in a moving escalator, new steps appear one by one from one end, while old steps simultaneously disappear into the other end.
