We give three examples of stochastic processes in the Gelfand-Tsetlin cone in which each component evolves independently apart from a blocking and pushing interaction. These processes give rise to couplings between certain conditioned Markov processes, last passage times and exclusion processes. In the first two examples, we deduce known identities in distribution between such processes whilst in the third example, the components of the process cannot escape past a wall at the origin and we obtain a new relation.
