I have been looking for a proper train model shop for quite awhile in Leicestershire and came across a signal box in Anstey excellent shop and good prices and friendly staff

Since retiring 12 months ago and getting back into model railways and having to relearn the hobby, THE SIGNAL BOX and its staff have been a massive help to me with advice and suggestions. Highly recommended .

Easily the best and friendliest model shop I know. Martin and all his staff are very knowledgeable and will always go out of their way to help. Prices are very competitive and the shop carries a great variety of products including a fantastic second hand selection. Well worth a visit

Carl , Leicester - 28 Nov 2014 - Five Stars
Very informative, friendly, helpful and willing to repair the impossible! Fantastic range of track, scenery, rolling stock and engines at very reasonable prices.

Arnold , Coventry - 24 Sep 2014 - Four Stars
I visited this shop on Tuesday 23rd September and found it to be very well stocked with items laid out well to assist browsing. There is a very good selection of second hand stock at fair prices and all s/h locos purchased carry a six month guarantee. I found the owner very friendly and helpful indeed and came away with some materials and a second hand bachmann loco that was both reasonably priced and in good condition. As we now no longer have a "Proper" Model shop in coventry I shall be visiting again and alerting friends to this lovely shop.
