Really nice gentleman offered me some lovely bargains and it was well worth the short trip from Leeds to find this pleasant small model shop. I hope to return in the future.

Martin was a very friendly, knowledgeable, fair shop owner. He gave me a fair price for all my Hornby railway trains and coaches and for all my goods carriages and misc items. I would recommend Martin to anyone that wishes to sell their train sets. I was delighted that all my set was going to a good home.

I called the model shop to enquire about selling my Grandsons collection of trains and was pleasantly surprised at the quick response and the very fare valuation I was given for the collection of trains and aeroplanes and the prompt payment.
I would certainly recommend this shop to anyone either buying or selling.
A great guy to deal with!! and overall good expierience.

Not just a shopping trip but a full experience! Like I suspect is the case for many customers, I was there to renew stock after a couple of decades away from the hobby, and I received good advice and a good deal at the end. I live abroad but I now plan a visit for every return trip!

Martyn is a very chatty guy and makes you feel like a valued customer whenever you visit. He is happy to talk about all aspects of the hobby (and life in general!) and his prices are very fair. Worth a visit for sure. Has a massive selection of 00 railways and scenery and also a good selection of 00 scale road vehicles. Don't be put off if the door is locked during opening hours - it is for security and a knock on the door gets you in no problem.

Martyn will try his best to supply both good economical advice and wanted items. I had heard that he had ceased trading but this is obviously not the case and his shop remains full of stock, including some second hand. Will be calling in again.

Superb assortment of 'pre-owned' British outline model railway. Very helpful owner who took the time and effort to 'fix' some of my problematic locomotives, for which he didn't charge. Well worth a visit. Only negative, needs some one to sweep the floor! Best model railway shop in the area.

Returned to hobby after 40 years, I visted on the recommedation of a friend and was able to park just around the corner. Excellent part ex. given and a large range of rolling stock to choose from. The advice I received on what I wanted to do was far more widespread and knowledgeable than I expected.
Martin has given me plenty of food for thought. I could have spent a lot longer talking to him but he had other customers to deal with.
Well worth the drive to get there, and will be visting again definitely.
