Miniature Railroad Crossing Signal. Kiddieland Amusement Park. Melrose Park Illinois USA. July 2006.
Seen here looking northeast toward First Avenue -U.S Route # 171, is one of a few railroad crossing signals, operating in the east parking lot at the Kiddieland Amusement Park. These signals have a unique 4 beat ringing sound and are operated by electric solonoids. They sound like -Ping - Ping - Ping -Ping. In the near future...I may attempt to try and ad a sound file to My blog page, as I have a recording of these Miniature signals. These signals help protect the Kiddieland Limited and it's passengers as it cautiously passes through the parking lot.
