Title supplied by cataloger. Angels flight operated from 1901 until it was closed in 1969 when its location was redeveloped. The railway was relocated and reassembled at California Plaza in March of 1995, and closed again on February of 2001 after a serious accident resulted in the death of a passenger, and the injuries of seven others. The accident occurred when the ascending Sinai cable car suddenly reversed direction and uncontrollably accelerated downhill and struck the Olivet cable car near the lower terminus. The second funicular still exists and reopened in 2010. Angels Flight Railway was added to the National Register of Historic Places on October 13, 2000, structure #00001168. A view straight up the tracks from the bottom of Angels Flight. The tracks can be seen even through the arch at the bottom of the hill. Three pedestrians cross the street and the 3rd St. tunnel is visible along the right, but the hill itself has only grass on it, as buildings have been demolished as part of the re-development of Bunker Hill. Photograph dated June 9, 1965.
