Established in 2000 we are a major stockist of all main brands and many smaller suppliers in all scales. In 2014 we opened our new 2000 square foot model railway showroom. Here you will find the largest display of model railways in Wales. This includes a wide selection of secondhand models which we buy and sell and custom weathered stock off the shelf or to commission. Our in house weathering service 'Dirty Boy!' Has customers across the UK and beyond. Free parking and cafe, open 7 days a week.

L&B are very willing to send items abroad which in my experience have arrived within 3 or 4 days of the order being placed - well done! I have been personally to the shop, which is very well stocked. Mr Lord and Mr Butler are very helpful and knowledgeable and they will run a loco prior to sale to ensure all is in working order. The 'Dirty Boy' weathering is very impressive too.

Recently ordered a bachmann coach Online. Item arrived two days later, well packed and with a nice hand writted "Thank you for your order" on a compliments slip. Recieved several e.Mail notifications of the progress of the item too. Will have to pay a visit one day as the video of the shop viewable from their website looks interesting.
