A funicular is a cable railroad, especially one on a mountainside, in which ascending and descending cars are counterbalanced.
The Angles Flight Funicular Railway in Los Angeles, California operated from 1901 through 1969. Intermittent operations followed. The railway moved to its current location in 1996.
In 2017, the Angels Flight® Railway Foundation selected the Angels Flight® Development Company, LLC, a joint venture led by the ACS Group, to recondition, operate, and maintain the funicular for the next 30 years. Passenger service operations, subject to occasional closures for maintenance, recommenced on August 31, 2017.
The Railway's Top Station is located at California Plaza, 350 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles 90071. The Lower Entrance is located at 351 South Hill Street, Los Angeles 90013, across from Grand Central Market.
