Angels Flight Railway
Shortest railway in the US offers a scenic view of LA.Address
351 South Hill St
For just 25 cents you can board one of the two orange and black incline railway cars and ride “The Shortest Railway in the World.” This funicular dates back to 1901, when Bunker Hill was one of the most fashionable neighborhoods in Los Angeles and the cars, Olivet and Sinai, ferried prominent citizens up and down the steep slope between Hill and Olive streets. The beloved landmark was dismantled for “urban renewal” of the area in 1969. In the early 1990s, the Railway was refurbished and relocated a half-block south, reopening adjacent to California Plaza in 1996. As short as it is (298 feet), Angels Flight is an essential Los Angeles experience.
