Lost Train Layout – Mike’s Trainland

Here is video of Mike’s Trainland back when my family visited in December 1992. Mike’s Trainland, located in Suffolk Virginia, consisted of a train store and a large museum consisting of several model railroad layouts. The kid you see in the green and red jacket is me at age 5. Mike’s Trainland closed in 1998 and the toy train collection was split up. For more information on this awesome train museum that is no more, please see the links provided below: Highlights: 00:00 Large Playmobil layout 00:42 Lionel Train layout 01:08 Mixture of large scale layouts.
