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."
