A neat and tidy shop with a good range of basics. The owner has built a layout which well demonstrates a number of key principles, including the wiring of reverse loops using a pair of PL-13s and a lifting flap, and is very knowledgeable about the process of building a layout. This would be a good shop to visit for anyone thinking of building a layout but uncertain how to start. Definitely worth a visit if in the town.

I made a point of visiting 10th March 2016. We live in Swindon but go to BoS several times a year for family and for the August Burnham MRC show. I had not heard of the shop before seeing the advert in Railway Modeller late last year. I bought a few structure kits that I had not been aware of before for a narrow gauge project. Small but well stocked and well laid out and tidy shop, worth a visit when in the area and I will return whenever we go down to Burnham. Friendly and helpful owners, recommended, and please support, the hobby needs shops like these as well as the big boys.

Having to decide to return to the hobby after a absence of a few years, I thought I would relax on holiday designing a new portable layout. Finding this shop only 15 minutes walk away from where we were staying, it turned out to be a godsend to me. Everyone will notice the friendly atmosphere when you enter the shop finding both keith and his good lady so helpful, always willing to go the extra mile in assisting you with any query you may have as well as encouraging with ideas to help. Thank you both for everything.

Again both cath and keith excel themselves in delivering such a great service. They come up trumps every time when when I ask them , ( Can you get??? ), and within a few days or so my order is ready to collect, and if it is not right, no problem, they solve it. Well done both of you and keep up the good hard work you do.Good offers on hornby trucks as well. Nice to see the shop layout progress each time I visit. My loyalty card is growing too, to buy that christmas prezzy. Kindest regards kevin

Very friendly, helpful staff! Offering a range of products! A large selection of kits, scratch building matriels, dcc fitting and repair services! Take advantage of discounts with their customer loyalty schemes. Despite being rather new I couldn't recommend this store high enough, having moved from one side of the country I have found my new local model shop!
