The real thing, friendly and knowledgeable owner and staff, good stock of available RTR and kits, spares, specialist detailing parts, tools, materials, paint, books; often has interesting and good quality secondhand items. Takes orders and persists even if it takes years to obtain supply! Could it be twenty years since my first visit? Never been disappointed.

I sold my railway collection to this shop - They offered me a good price which they stuck to on receiving my goods. They gave me a prompt, courteous and efficient service, which I would recommend and use again myself.

The owners are very helpful and very knowledgeable. I am starting up a hornby 3 rail set again after 50 years of it sitting in the loft. The shop is located for me in a good position and it is easy to spend time looking through all the stock. They hold some old diecast models and they have the contacts for servicing old models. There pricing is very fair. It is great to visit and browse.

An excellent shop which, although mainly focused on model railways, also carries an interesting range of models. Also good stocks of paint, plastic card, scenic accessories etc. The owner is also a very pleasant chap who is both friendly and helpful. Recommended.
