Outdoor Wednesday #235 Angel's Flight Los Angeles

Photos taken at Angel's Flight in Los Angeles, CA

Had a great time in Los Angeles visiting friends and exploring not only Hollywood but downtown LA.  At fifty cents a ride, Angel's flight is not only the least expensive railway you will ever find but it is the shortest railway line in the world traveling about one to two blocks.

It is located in the Bunker Hill area of Los Angeles between Hill street and Grand avenue.  It is very narrow, both the tracks and cars with a steep uphill climb.  I was thrilled to see this as it is a landmark and has a rich history which you can read here.

I did not have time to ride this quaint little railroad while there but am definitely looking forward to it in the near future.
