Well stocked model railway shop. All profits from the shop go to support the Pontypool & Blaenavon Railway which operates nearby. At the railway we have another small shop with some model railway items for sale. At our main shop we sell a limited number of second hand items. We have a repair service and decoder fitting service. If an item is not in stock we will try to obtain the item as soon as possible. We have our own selection of limited edition private owner wagons.

Well worth a visit. They have new stock from all the major model railway suppliers plus a reasonably priced s/h selection and rail-gauged die-cast. The staff were welcoming and knowledgeable. An addaed attraction is that all profits go to the local heritage railway.

I was hardly overwhelmed by the warmth of my welcome. As a customer, I seemed to be an inconvenience. I won't be returning. Shame, as they have a good selection of model railway items. [Response: "I was very sad to hear that a customer had gone away with feelings of being neglected after visiting our shop.
The one thing that we aim to do is to welcome all our customers and help them in any way and I'm very surprised to have this review.
All our staff are volunteers and have been helping out on various days for many years. We have regular members who staff each day but at the moment half of the days are covered by other volunteers. I'm on holiday at the moment and another member has just had an operation and is away for a long period. This means that the replacement staff are not so confident in serving in the shop and perhaps give the wrong impression.
All our volunteer staff are model railway enthusiasts and are members of the Pontypool and Blaenavon Railway to which all profits from the shop go to help run and restore this line."]
