Graham , 2 Wellington Terrace, Marsden,, West Yor - 29 Apr 2017 - Five Stars
Visited the shop again yesterday taking a troublesome Bachmann Class 40. They gave the wheels a good clean, fitted stay alive and a sound chip. The service once again was spot on and the Class 40 now sounds great and runs like a dream. Lovely coffee too.

Good friendly & knowledgeable service with a "smile" in the voice. Had exactly what I wanted and despatched as soon as possible by Royal Mail, received within a few days.With a lack of any local model shops this was the best way to buy a limited issue loco.

Graham , Bolton - 29 Apr 2017 - Five Stars
I was first struck by the large selection of stock on display and the ease with which I could spot items of interest. The knowledgeable staff then provide details of the options available. We then digressed into good driving practice and the relative performance of Class 31 and Class 40 locos before rounding off with thoughts on DCC. I will be calling in again.

I have been delighted to find Olivia's trains because they can do everything I like with locomotives, decoders, lights, stay- alive capacitors,and more, and their service is excellent and helpful especially with beginners like myself. Also returns and repairs have been no problem.

I have visited the shop a couple of times and use mail order regularly. The directions given for getting from Sheffield railway station to the shop are excellent. Olivia's have a great range of stock with many items not available elsewhere. I have found them very friendly and extremely helpful. When I visited last they were prepared to get additional work done out of cycle so that I could take goods with me rather than have them posted. The service is excellent. Goods are shipped in a very timely manner. Thoroughly recommended and well worth taking time out to visit if traveling in the region.

Have not visited the store but have purchased a few sound decoders over the years. Great service and very helpful with any issues I have had with programming.

Alan , Shanklin, Isle Of Wight - 21 Apr 2017 - Four & a half Stars
Have found there online shop to be one of the best out there, offering a wide range of work to be carried out on your order is dispatched. They stock hard to find items as well. Will definitely use again.

Benedict , High Wycombe - 19 Apr 2017 - Four & a half Stars
Really good service and excellent range of trains. Got a Class 08 FGW from Olivia's with sound and light fitted, something other big mail places won't even offer, and was far too fiddly for me. Class 68 on order for once the sound recordings are finalised and their customer service is really good, with quick responses to email.

I visited Olivia's on 10/04/2017 I asked about fitting some new working lights to my class 40. This was done whilst I waited and am very pleased with the result.

Douglas , Manchester - 08 Apr 2017 - Four & a half Stars
Visited the shop after a very constructive phone call finding my Olivia's Train sound was not performing. The staff at the shop were great especially as my sound was not Olivia's sound. Sypathetic to my dilema they got to work on reprogramming and smartening up an extremely poor wiring job. Professional was always on my mind as they set about making things right. As I waited I was offerred coffee and talked to other obviously satisfied customers. I saw some of their work demonstrated - amazing to see and I have to say the cost to me for the time, effort and good banter was extremely reasonable. See you again and I'll bring friends!

William , Strathyre, Perthshire - 07 Apr 2017 - Four & a half Stars
Great service and excellent customer satisfaction, super choice of locos and detailing. All telephone staff are very knowledgeable and willing to help to ensure that satidfaction is achieved.

Christopher , Manchester M16 - 01 Apr 2017 - Five Stars
Order was beautifully packed. The goods arrived as advertised. Very impressed.
