Well, that was a pretty short run, wasn’t it?

Four days after the much-ballyhooed restart of Angels Flight, the famed funicular that climbs Bunker Hill in downtown Los Angeles is idled again — temporarily.

“Note that the railway will be closed for maintenance on Labor Day and for several days thereafter,” reads a blurb on www.angelsflight.org, which advises readers to check back for updates.

The railway’s twin cars, Olivet and Sinai, resumed operation Thursday after being out of service since 2013.
