AAA Editor Notes

Angels Flight is at 351 S. Hill St. Known as &#8220;The Shortest Railway in the World,&#8221; Angels Flight carries passengers a mere 298 feet between Hill Street and the California Plaza Watercourt. The twin, black and orange-cr&#232;me painted railway cars (named &#8220;Sinai&#8221; and &#8220;Olivet&#8221; after the Biblical mountains) began carrying passengers up the steep hill in 1901, were mothballed in 1969, and were reinstalled at their current location a half block south of their original site in 1996. Angels Flight is a traditional counter-balanced funicular, meaning the cars are attached to the opposite ends of the same cable.</br></br>
