Angels Flight closed part of Tuesday night for routine maintenance
The historic Angels Flight was closed temporarily Tuesday night for routine maintenance, one of several shutdowns that will occur during the upcoming weeks as workers fine-tune the system, officials said.
The funicular cars were out of service about 7:30 p.m. but were expected to be running later Tuesday night, said John Welborne, president of Angels Flight Railway.
Angels Flight reopened Monday after it was closed following a accident that left one person dead and seven others seriously injured in early 2001.
Welborne said about 2,900 rides were recorded Monday on the downtown railway. "It was a huge crowd," he said.
