The Kiddieland Limited waiting in the station. Kiddieland Amusemet Park. Melrose Park Illinois. July 2008., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo during a July 2008 visit to Chicago's Kiddieland Amusement Park, in near northwest suburban Melrose Park Illinois.
It is getting near the end of another Summer evening session at this once popular family owned amusement park, as an operating crew member of the Miniature Railroad ride, waits for a few passengers to board.
After 81 years in business, Kiddieland was closed for good in September of 2009.
Today, this is the site of a large Costco wholesale warehouse club store.
