Rick's Personal Layout.
The ATSF, Coast Lines, Valley Division, 4th District (AKA: the 4th District) is Rick's large HO scale, 1970s era, Santa Fe based, personal model railroad. Originally called the SIerra Western and Santa Fe RR, it was started in July 1994 and is planned as a thirty year project. It is being constructed in a 47ft x 25ft room built spefically for the layout. With the help of several friends, approximately 80% of the double deck, walk-around style layout is now operational. It was featured in the November 1999 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman.
