Just a quick update since there's not been a review for a wee while. Went to check yesterday to see if it was running since I was keen to go on it but the cars are still suspended half way up the incline.

This is a little piece of L.A. history that refuses to die. The hill its purpose was to climb was levelled but preservationists held out and it was reinstalled. Not operating when I last saw it. :-(

Honestly its a shame that the city has to await certain approvals (according to postings) since Feb of 2014 for it to be fully functional, yet around the area buildings are going up. For visual it's pretty neat to stare at. Overall well... ya that's about it.

Located in downtown- Angels Flight is something everyone has to ride on when in the city. It's been refurbished a couple of times yet it's kept it original touch. The ride is around 15-25 cents I believe and it leads down to a marketplace where you can try all sorts of ethnic foods and it leads up to the financial... More

very cool piece of history to see. It was closed when I took my mother to see it, and apparently this is a common problem. Check to see if it's operationg before making the trek downtown.

Apparently this short funivia is always closed for repairs, as it was when I was there. Cool history and a nice look, but...get it together!

If you've not seen a funicular railway before it's worth a short detour but it's not very long at all. It also was closed for work when we visited so unable to say if the ride is anything to bother with.

$0.50 for a ride on the shortest railway? Absolutely! It's adorable- Short and sweet;) We rode it to the top and walked over to the Disney Concert Hall, then back to the little park with 'Tom's bench'- someone was sitting on it, but the view was nice anyways...

I enjoy a funicular. This one was not running. The sign that was posted was January 2014 - testing. It is a short walk from the Disney Hall...so an easy walk. Will check again next time I am in LA>
