Angels Flight Eric Richardson

Twin Angels Flight cars Olivet and Sinai finally got to do something besides tweet to each other on Tuesday afternoon as the tiny rail line resumed service. It had been shut down June 10, when state inspectors declared the line's wheel flanges dangerously worn.

The eight new wheels were installed on Thursday, June 30. Inspectors returned to the railway on Tuesday morning to certify that the line was ready to reopen.

Angels Flight now returns to its normal schedule, operating from 6:45am to 10pm, seven days a week.
