I have used the shop frequently, and I have to say the service is second to none, thoroughly recommended.

Very disapponted in the N gauge stock carried. Just two glass cabinets with the stock not properly displayed so difficult to see what they were actually carrying. Contrast this to the OO stock which is properly displayed. Sorry but not a patch on the old modelzone shop which promoted both N and OO with equal measure. If you model in OO then worth a visit but give this one a miss if you model in N gauge. [Response: "In response to the above review I take the point theN Gauge section could have been better presented. This is mainly due to customers "re-arranging" the shelves. Plans are in place to extend the range of N gauge locomotives, rolling stock and accessories in the very near future. As for comparisons with the previous owners, we carry almost three times the railway stock they carried and think it unrealistic to advise people to avoid the shop. Come and have a look and decide for yourselves. Kind regards, Paul Boyland."]
