Angels Flight's Demons

New, 3 comments

The Angel's Flight's funicular derailed last month and the National Transportation Safety Board still isn't sure why, but it may have had something to do with the fact that it's being run by Wile E. Coyote: "In its report, the [NTSB] said the railway's operators had broken off a branch from a nearby tree and used it to permanently depress a button so that the cars on the 298-foot track would restart during unintended stops. These stops, a sign of problems on the line, were happening regularly before the accident." [AP]
