Angels Flight reopened Thursday morning following a four-year closure and a $5 million renovation.

The funky funicular is billed as "the shortest railway in the world,” and a one-way trip costs just $1.

KPCC's transportation reporter Megan McCarty Carino attended the grand re-opening of Angels Flight and had a chance to ride the rails Thursday morning. She called it a "symbol of old L.A.," one with "a storied history."

Meghan joins Larry to talk about the relaunch. And we want to hear your Angels Flight stories and memories. Call us at 866-893-5722.
