Spent a lovely hour in Martin and his lovely dog's company. Very knowledgable and friendly guy who is only to willing to help. Only went in for dcc clips and my husband and I came out with a beautiful loco, three matching coaches and a wagon and all at an extremely competitive and fair price. For what looks like a small shop the stock is massive. Martin offers loco repairs at cost and we were given a voucher for 10% off our next purchase. Well worth a short detour off the M62 or A1 and easy parking behind the shopping precinct opposite.

Lovely shop. Martin very knowledgeable. Great buys on accessories for my grandson’s train track. Extensive and comprehensive collection of trains and track We will definitely use the shop again.

Really nice gentleman offered me some lovely bargains and it was well worth the short trip from Leeds to find this pleasant small model shop. I hope to return in the future.

Martin was a very friendly, knowledgeable, fair shop owner. He gave me a fair price for all my Hornby railway trains and coaches and for all my goods carriages and misc items. I would recommend Martin to anyone that wishes to sell their train sets. I was delighted that all my set was going to a good home.

Kevin , Castleford - 11 Jan 2018 - Five Stars
I called the model shop to enquire about selling my Grandsons collection of trains and was pleasantly surprised at the quick response and the very fare valuation I was given for the collection of trains and aeroplanes and the prompt payment. I would certainly recommend this shop to anyone either buying or selling. A great guy to deal with!! and overall good expierience.

Not just a shopping trip but a full experience! Like I suspect is the case for many customers, I was there to renew stock after a couple of decades away from the hobby, and I received good advice and a good deal at the end. I live abroad but I now plan a visit for every return trip!

Ian , Leeds - 07 Aug 2017 - Four Stars
Martyn is a very chatty guy and makes you feel like a valued customer whenever you visit. He is happy to talk about all aspects of the hobby (and life in general!) and his prices are very fair. Worth a visit for sure. Has a massive selection of 00 railways and scenery and also a good selection of 00 scale road vehicles. Don't be put off if the door is locked during opening hours - it is for security and a knock on the door gets you in no problem.

Peter , Scunthorpe - 31 Mar 2017 - Five Stars
Fourth visit to Martin as helpful as ever replacing old stock for more modern or updated stock plenty to choose from and fair exchange prices good knowledge natter well worth 80mile round trip

Alex , Aughton, Sheffield - 24 Mar 2017 - Five Stars
Martyn will try his best to supply both good economical advice and wanted items. I had heard that he had ceased trading but this is obviously not the case and his shop remains full of stock, including some second hand. Will be calling in again.

Julie , Featherstone, West Yorkshire - 08 Sep 2016 - Five Stars
Would highly recommend this shop, the owner is very friendly and helpful - he went out of his way to help my husband find what he was looking for. Very happy customer!

Stuart , Hatfield - 19 Jul 2016 - Four Stars
Superb assortment of 'pre-owned' British outline model railway. Very helpful owner who took the time and effort to 'fix' some of my problematic locomotives, for which he didn't charge. Well worth a visit. Only negative, needs some one to sweep the floor! Best model railway shop in the area.
