Angels Flight to re-open early Monday morning. KPCC will be there.

I just received this e-mail:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

March 13, 2010

PRESS ADVISORY
HISTORIC ANGELS FLIGHT RAILWAY
TO REOPEN ON MONDAY, MARCH 15

Los Angeles - Dennis R. Luna, chairman of the Angels Flight Railway Foundation, announced today that the Angels Flight Railway will resume regular passenger service at 6:45am on Monday, March 15, 2010.

Last June, I caught the seemingly endless testing process in action and posted the video.

LAist asks, “So, now that Angels Flight is re-opening...who will be taking a ride?”

I will. Unless we’ve assigned another reporter to cover it. I am never one to insist that – especially when it involves getting up at 6am – I am indispensible.

They’re also holding a news conference later that morning, to include Christopher Eddy Cherryholmes, the great-great-great grandson of Angels Flight creator Colonel James Ward Eddy; and Robert Moreland, 86, son of the couple who owned Angels Flight in the 50s and 60s.
