Biennial maintenance on Angels Flight has been going well, and with all the track work completed last week, and the bulk of the interior car work completed Thursday, the world's shortest railway is gearing up to resume some service.

Angels Flight will start running up and down Bunker Hill late afternoons and in the evenings.

"We have been anxious to resume public service," said Railway President John Welborne via email, "and we now can do so each day -- after the restoration company finishes its morning work (usually until about 3 p.m.) on the cars' exteriors."

Even better: The fare remains 25 cents a ride, Welborne confirmed.

An announcement on when Angels Flight would return to its full 16-hours-per-day service is expected as soon as all the interior car work is completed.
