David pooley is a charming and knowledgable man on all matters to do with modelling. The railway stock is wide ranging and reasonably priced with plenty of good quality s/h. His motto is "Just ask!" and it is amazing what can be found. We visited while on holiday and found it an easy run from gateshead on the 94 bus, which stops at sainsbury's nearby. If you're oop north to see the angel or the tyne bridges you must give pooley's a visit.

After visiting the shop I was amazed at the range of stock available, I only went in for some track pins but came out with a bit more. The owner is really helpful and friendly. I will be using this shop alot more from now on, a excellent little gem of a shop and a must for railway modelers.

Having travelled up and down the uk i've been lots of model railway shops and I have to say this is the best i've been to. They have great stock and the prices aren't silly like some of them. The owner is really helpful especially for a novice like myself and cant recommend the place highly enough and, for me, it was well worth travelling up from oxford for. Top notch. Will definitely be buying there again!

This is a little gem of a shop. As a beginner in the model railway community I found the proprietor very helpful and knowledgeable. Although the unit is not large it is like an aladin’s cave. It is crammed full of everything you could possibly want (As well as a lot of things you didn’t know you wanted) they are quite prepared to open boxed items and operate a returns policy even on used items.
