RonLines must one of the very best model railway shops. I live on the Wirral but always call to see Ron and his extremely helpful and knowledgeable team whenever visiting relatives in Southampton. The stock range is superb and the second hand stock immense. The claim is 'perhaps the biggest second hand stock on the south coast'. I would say anywhere as all the stock is readily on view, neatly arranged and displayed and above all at reasonable prices, not like my local shops highly inflated S/H prices. Highly recommended and well worth a 240 mile journey!

Ron and his staff have all the product knowledge and helpfulness about railways, that you will need to know. The entire composition of the shop is `perfect`. It has easy access to all display cabinets of stock and adequately well lit too. You will always get a friendly and warm welcome when you go in, unlike some other model railways shops that I have visited. This shop is in an absolutely perfect location, with easy parking and `must` not be missed when in the southampton or south hampshire area. I totally recommend a visit to see ron and his helpful staff.

What an excellent shop. Welcoming, helpful and well stocked, friendly owner and staff. New location a few doors up a lot brighter.

Pete , Netley Abbey, Hampshire - 20 Feb 2015 - Four & a half Stars
The ron lines shop has moved recently, but is still in the same block in shirley road. Same helpful and knowledgeable staff, same wide range of new and used product, in different scales and with uk and us outlines, but with a bonus of more room.
