Visited Caistor Loco while visiting a friend in the town last month. Typical old-school model shop - stuff stashed in every nook and cranny with a welcoming proprietor who knows what and where everything is, and also what's sold out! Picked up some reasonably priced discontinued whitemetal kits to try out from the bargain box. Will definitely call again when next in town.

Visited the shop this morning - what a paradise! They have a comprehensive stock and the owner was such a pleasant and efficient guy. I told him what I was looking for and within a few minutes he delved into a large shelf of stock and produced it! It was unavailable elsewhere and yet he had one and whats more at a very competitive price! I could have spent the day in there! Will definitely be going again!

Excellent little shop. Pleasant and very helpful owners who have good knowledge of the model railway hobby. Shop stuffed full of product - it would be difficult to walk out without having found something you want. A cave of delights! Competitive on pricing.

From Cambrian Models: we've just returned from delivering an order of wagon kits to Caistor Loco today, and I can confirm that it is open, and that the opening hours/phone number are as on your website. Phone number is OK. It's a small shop, but packed with stock (even the floor!). Well worth a visit.

Visited Caistor Loco shop for the first time last Thursday. I have bought 'stuff' from them at Exhibitions, Lincoln, Spalding & Boston Shows, in the past. It's is by for the best Model Railway premises I have ever visited, just about everything that a Railway Modeller could want is there, together with good, honest, straightforward advice as well. All the best for the future, Pete.

I have traded with caistor loco for seven years and they are th best model shop anywhere. The owner, pete, is very knowledgeable and nothing is ever too much trouble. Their range of stock is amazing and well priced.

I have known pete for a few years now and like to take my custom to caistor loco as much as I can. I mostly model in 7 mm narrow gauge so I have to build most things from scratch.The shop is great for modelling materials, paints and tools.You always get a warm welcome at the shop and I hope to be using it for years to come.

I came across this trader at the boston model railway society exhibition this weekend. Very good selection of OO r-T-R, wagon kits, track, buildings etc. All reasonably priced and special offers too. The gentleman was very friendly and knowledgeable, assisting me in choosing a loco. Nothing was too much trouble. I now intend to visit their shop (Although it is 57 miles away!) as I have seen all the other good reviews here. It's great when you discover a nice shop where you can see and choose items - I prefer it to buying on-Line. I will post a further review in due course.
