Angels Flight Railway Tours

73 reviews
In 1901, Angeles Flight began its run as a funicular called the Los Angeles Incline Railway, offering a one-cent, one-minute ride up or down steep Bunker Hill in Downtown Los Angeles. Closed in 1969 when the then-decaying district around it underwent a full-scale renovation, the Angels Flight signature black-and-orange cars (named Sinai and Olivet) stayed in municipal storage for 27 years.

After a long battle by city conservationists for its return, Angels Flight was re-opened in 1996, just a half-block from its original site, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2000. Despite its completely modernized and re-designed operating system, Angels Flight experienced a tragic accident in 2001, when Sinai reversed without warning and plummeted downhill into Olivet, killing one passenger and injuring several others.

After immediately shuttering, Angels Flight would remain closed to the public until March 2010, undergoing yet another complete re-design and rigorous testing in the interim. Today the "Shortest Railway in the World" connects Downtown's Broadway commercial district with Bunker Hill's California Plaza Watercourt and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA).

Run by L.A.'s Metro system, the cost of a one-way ride is currently 50 cents or 5 rides for 2 dollars. It is open every day from 6:45 am to 10 pm.
