Great service provided by some very friendly staff who are always happy to talk trains with you. A great range of products and the only let down is the website which can be a little hard to find items on but never the less it provides a very much needed service to many modellers around the York area. Prices are decent and they always have some special offer. Every uk gauge is catered for (n,oo,o,g,009,large diorama scale).

Always pop in when in York. Great selection of model rail items; I'd been looking for some Bachmann wagons for some time and they had 3 at a great price. Prices are good with excellent customer service. Well worth a visit.

Spoke to andy monk, who arranged the selling and chipping of an n-Gauge graham farish type 08. Great service and only cost £10 labour charge, well chuffed.

This has been a regular port of call for me for over 25 years on visits to york (I should have reviewed before now!).It is a well presented shop and its longevity (Over 50 years) is a testament to both how well it has been run, and the ability of the owners to move with the times. It hosts a wide range of products and is invariably well stocked with attractive and comfortable to view displays. The visitor will always find the staff (Of which there are several)helpful, knowledgeable and characteristically 'yorkshire' in their approach. Here you have a traditional, welcoming shop of the type which started many of us off in the first place. It is in a convenient city centre location and creates that reassuring 'special experience' felt in a true model enthusiasts outlet. Well worth a visit and in my opinion fully deserving of the modelling community's support.

Good product range in a small shop but staff are very knowledgeable/helpful. Repairs and modifications are undertaken in their workshop. Location is easy to find.

I visited this shop in the summer as I used to visit it as a kid. It was a wonderful piece of nostalgia and the shop was really well stocked and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. My son enjoyed the visit almost as much as I did. I would strongly recommend a visit
