298 Feet of Fun - Angels Flight Railway

Recently Tracy and I rode on a Los Angeles historical icon Ö not many of those left. Angels Flight started operating in 1901. Through the years it has been closed for redevelopment, moved from one location to another and even had an accident that led to the death of one of its riders. Angels Flight, however, has survived it all, and is once again operating in downtown Los Angeles. If you have a buck or two, itís worth the effort, and itís located right across the street from the historic Grand Central Market. Check it out when youíre in town for a little nostalgic fun.

An icon for sure. I was so sad when it almost closed down for good. So glad itís back up and running (PS Have you seen this season of Bosch? Angels Flight figures prominently in the story).

"Angels Flight figures prominently in the story"

Someone mentioned it today after reading this. We're going to watch tonight when the heat dips below 175
Is it hot up there? About 113 in Pasadena right now.

We're in Lake Tahoe where the weather is perfect (mid-80s, sitting outside at a bar, listening to live music weather!)

Me too. FWIW I think Bosch does as fine a job of showing off "old LA" and really capturing the essence of the place as anything I've ever seen on TV. I watch every episode looking for little Easter eggs of places he visits or drives by, whereupon I start pointing and jumping up and down (to the annoyance of people watching it with me) shouting "Ooh, ooh..." and relating unwelcome stories about how I know about the place or how it featured in my own life experience. How they love it when I do that.
