Closed for nine years since a deadly accident, Angels Flight is set to return to passenger service this Monday morning, according to an announcement sent out today by the Angels Flight Railway Foundation. Service will return at 6:45am.

Twin cars Olivet and Sinai were busy today ferrying invited passengers up and down the incline railway, which is finally able to reopen now that the California Public Utilities Commission has given its blessing to safety tests.

The 108-year-old railway reopened in its current location connected to California Plaza in 1996. It has been closed since 2001.
