    So I was just watching the news and happy to see a Los Angeles icon re-open after a fatal accident 6 years ago (the terror when you're sitting there at work and the news hits). But then I noticed that in their artistic attempt the words Angels Flight looks like Ancels Flicht.
    Bummer that LA.

    Do you have any more background details for us southerners who don't recall the situation? :)

    Some background. What this article does not mention is that Angel's Flight was completely disassembled and stored for many years before it was reconstructed in a new location on Bunker Hill during the '90s. Then the accident shut it down again. This little railway has had more lives than a cat! (The sign, BTW, is original.)
