5/9/09: Angels Flight moves ever closer to re-opening. As at the beginning, so near the end: fumigation! Termites were discovered in a small part of one of the cars, so it was decided to have both of them fumigated before things got any more serious. At the same time, we received a visit from the Los Angeles Fire Department, Engine Company #3. Some of these firefighters were among the first responders when the accident occurred that shut down the railway for eight years.

For safety’s sake, none of the fumigation crew were allowed on top of the cars, only Bob Sutton. So you will see how the tarps were laid out, how the cars were prepared, and some of the visiting personnel from Engine Company #3, which serves Downtown Los Angeles.
