Silent digital video: The Kiddieland Limited departing the station. Kiddieland Amusement Park. Melrose Park Illinois. June 2007.

I photographed this vintage looking silent digital video with My old digital camera after work one evening, back in June of 2007.

We are in the east parking lot of the former Kiddieland Amusement Park in Melrose Park Illinois. It is early in the Summer operating season, and patronage on the weeknights is still pretty light yet.

The Kiddieland Limited gasoline powered replica streamliner passenger train, is viewed departing from the boarding station, and entering the east parking lot.

After 81 years in operation, Kiddieland Amusement Park closed for good on Sunday, September 27th, 2011. Today, the former Kiddieland site, is now home to a large Costco warehouse club store, at the northwest corner of North and First Avenues in Melrose Park Illinois.
