I visit the shop usually every few weeks. I have purchased many locos and stock from Martin and all have been at a very fair rate and all have been excellent in condition and performance. I have always found Martin to be helpful and generous in his advice and assistance. This is a real gem of a shop for all OO modellers and I strongly advise a visit. You will not be disappointed.

A very pleasant and helpful man. He was very willing to give us a honest valuation on the items we took to show him, and purchased what he thought he could use. We had made a special journey and were not disappointed.

Pleasant little shop that sells exclusively OO, but appears to have a large stock. Martin is extraordinarily helpful and very easy to chat with, even though as an N gauge modeller I wasn’t a prospective purchaser. The shop also offers a repair service at very reasonable cost, which is why I went. An unexpected gem and handy for the station too!

First time visiting , was looking around for a module shop as our grandson (5) got his first electric train set , and had been lucky enough to have uncles who saved their trains, needed to find some one who could give them a service and repair. Martin is an absolute gem , spent an enjoyable , informative afternoon and look forward to returning to collect the repaired engines .

Visited the shop for some advice as I'm just coming back to hobby after many years - Martin was very helpful & friendly and I'Ll certainly be back. He happily tested some old engines for me and while sadly they were beyond repair, I bought a replacement second hand HST125 set with three carriages and an second hand shunter for a fantastic price. There is very good range of engines and rolling stock available. This shop is highly recommended, less than 10 mins from the M1 with plentiful free parking behind the shops opposite.

Just popped in to have a look, and had a chat with the owner who is very knowledgable and helpful. Needless to say I left with some really brilliant bits and pieces. I have got an amazing amount of stuff for a stunningly low price!!!! I will certainly be going back again. Thanks very much

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.

David , Rotherham - 16 Jan 2018 - Four & a half Stars
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.
