The Downtown News rounds up all the quotes given by Angels Flight Railway Foundation President John Welborne relating to the funicular's re-opening. Exhibit A: In July 2001, Welborne told the Downtown News that "he expects a restored Angels Flight to be up and running before year’s end." He said the same thing in 2003. In 2004, Welborne predicted a late 2005 opening, while everyone remembers waking up the kids early this past Christmas morning, and heading downtown to see if a miracle had taken place. How the kids cried.
