Here are some pretty cool photos of the miniature train that used to chu-chu around Crandon Park. The imprints and dedicated space is still there, and there’s apparently a call as of May 2013 of last year for a business to take up the operation of the train. No word if anything has progressed with that but it would be great to see this attraction come back if interest supports it, however without the zoo it may be hard to justify an attraction to bring it to constant use. But its still cool to think positively though.

Below are 10 photos of the miniature train and its various train models that remained active in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Also, we found a random 8mm silent video of the area.
