Angels Flight is a landmark 2 ft 6 in narrow gauge funicular railway in the Bunker Hill district of Downtown Los Angeles, California which also made a cameo in many TV shows such az Amazon's Bosch.
We took the Metro downtown to the Pershing Square Station and went straight to Angel's Flight. We heard it had just restarted service after being out of service for quite a while. The cars had a fresh coat of paint and looked absolutely glorious and it was a joy to see the twin railway cars on the funicular run up and down the short incline of LA's Bunker Hill from Hill Street up to Olive Street and back.
Although it is reportedly the world's shortest railway, it was nevertheless wonderful to sit in the wooden seats that are terraced in the cars to match the slope of the hill's incline.The exact location is California Plaza, 350 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles 90071 is situated at the top station of the Railway. The Lower Entrance is situated opposite the Grand Central Market at 351 South Hill Street, Los Angeles 90013.
