Angels Flight Derails

Angels Flight, the world's shortest railway, derailed earlier today. Six passengers were assisted from the funicular railcar which is stuck mid-track. The steel wheels can been seen completely off the tracks.
The 113 year old railway has been plagued by crashes, and one death that occurred back in 2001.
No one was injured in today's accident.
