My sat-nav takes me to within a couple of miles of this shop when I go on holiday to North Wales, so why have I never been here before last weekend? What a find! A well-stocked shop with a huge range of ready to run stuff as well as loads of accessories and modelling materials for those who make or modify things for themselves. Above all though, the proprietor was just such a nice bloke. He was very positive in his approach and extremely knowledgeable. The shop is in an antiques/craft centre complex out in the countryside, which is great because there's lots of parking and "she who must be obeyed" was well occupied going round the other units there. Also there are tea-rooms and loos nearby. I should add that Sunday opening is a bonus too. I'll definitely be calling in again on my way to and from Snowdonia as it's such a minor deviation off route. I feel a bit guilty about not giving this shop full marks as the only reason I gave this shop 9/10 instead of 10/10 is that for me it's about 90 miles from where I live and my work never takes me to that part of the country, so for me it's not quite perfection. Call me selfish!

Following my visit last January I returned for my 2016 vist. The shop was as usual extremely well stocked for both the N & OO gauge modeller. The owner is extremely pleasent (Even remembering the missing bogie wheels on the loco I had purchsed the previous year - Which he sorted extremly quickly). This has to be one of the best run model shops in the uk both in terms of stock and service - (I observed the owner taking time to explain to a customer the best way to fit a point motor ensuring the pin was aligned with the point tie bar). Pity he couldn't open a branch in the west of scotland - He'd make a fortune as most of the model shops here have closed.

I have been going to this shop on and off for quite a few years and have seen it grow and get better. Well worth a visit and there is always plenty to tempt. Very helpful owner, nothing is too much trouble.

A wonderful shop with a knowledgeable and helpful owner. Picked up a very reasonable vitrains loco but was tempted by so many other items in the shop and in the secondhand cabinets - I think I need to stay away!

This is one of the best model shops you can visit. The shop is extremly well laid out. All rolling stock is displayed neatly in glass cases and is clearly sorted into the various gauges. Plenty of scenic material from card kits to plastic varients. The owner is extremely helpful. I purchased a new N gauge diesel but on my return home to scotland discovered the middle pair of wheels on one of the bogies was missing. an email to the owner sent on the Monday resulted in replacement wheels arriving just four days later - Fantastic service. Other model shops nearby should pay a visit and see how a model shop should be stocked, laid out and run.

Cracking shop - one of the best laid out shops i’ve visited - you can really see everything. A fair selection of secondhand as well as tons of RTR. Bonus of being opposite a secondhand bookshop packed with lots of old railway books. Free parking, friendly owner, excellent service.

This is an excellant model shop for trains and modellers of trains in OO & N gauges and the knowledge of the owner is second to none as he is a terain modeller himself which I foud out by talking to him I travel over 50 miles to buy trians and material from him which is not much more expensive than the top model shops in the north west excellent service keep it up

Excellent and friendly service. When needing to know the size of a model (Due to limited space available)and how it linked together. I was shown how to construct it and how large the built model would be. Well beyond the service levels expected. A1, well worth the visit when i'm visiting south.

After years of thinking about building the model railway I wanted as a child, ive finally taken the plunge. It was richards shop that prompted me to get started, a great selection of N and OO gauge trains and accessories. evey time I called in over the last few weeks richard has taken the time to answer my numerous question in a friendly and good humord manner. I would recomend this shop to anyone interested in model railways.
