Dick Trotter's Coyote Pass and Northern is an extensive HO scale layout in Lakeside. He has recently rebuilt parts of the building in which the layout sits. This is one of the more significant home layouts in the San Diego Area and shouldn't be missed if you are an avid model railroader. The era has a fairly wide span with the layout being mostly in the 50s but the motive power stretching into the 60s.

The layout is very carefully detailed and artfully done. Dick has pioneered layout techniques that never received much publicity because Dick doesn't seek that. There are some beautiful background scenes done by Glenn Shimada. Dick also makes use of Photoshopped buildings that look very realistic. The initial view of the layout is an amazing complex city scene with buildings on top of buildings put together in a convincing manner. The layout is also set up for operation sessions which Dick conducts regularly. After viewing Dick's layout, you definitely will go home with some ideas to apply to your own layout.
