The Kiddieland Limited prepares for departure. Kiddieland Amusement Park. Melrose Park Illinois USA. July 1985.
I took this photo on a July 1985 visit to Chicago's Kiddieland Amusement Park in Melrose Park Illinois during much happier times.
After 81 years, Chicago's Kiddieland Amusement Park will close this year at the end of the 2009 season. The Kiddieland Limited could very well have been Chicago's last non Amtrak passenger train. It will be missed.
