When Angels Flight opened in 1901, it had the distinction of being the shortest railroad. The two passenger cars – named Sinai and Olivert – traveled slowly up and down a 33% grade hill for 315 feet. The landmark funicular served for almost 70 years. In 1996, the narrow-gauge railway was moved a half block. The famous ride of LA closed for a while after a series of accidents then reopened in 2017.
