Mike Tricker’s Layout

I was very lucky to have the opportunity to operate Mike Tricker’s layout. His layout was in the June 2013 Model Railroader and we had a great time.

There are three levels. This is the upper level, view from the floor:

You need to get onto a raised area to see it properly:

You can see into the storage through a peephole and with a tv screen:
