Andrew , Sheffield - 29 May 2017 - Four & a half Stars
Ordered another class 76, my fourth locomotive now. This was purchased in the Easter sale (we pay the VAT). Arrived to exact specification with perfect weathering. The model run perfectly and is now running as part of my layout as a double header with a previously purchased one. Thank you to all the staff at Olivia's Trains for good quality items at a good price.

I have found Neil and the team have answered all of my questions quickly and items that I purchased delivered quickly and efficiently. This kind of service is appreciated, particularly as I reside in Australia. All I can say is: THANK YOU.

Ordered a new Pannier Tank today. Within minutes, I had an email saying I could collect it today. (I couldn't as it happened, but amazingly swift service.) Also recently returned a seized Ultima handset, which was exchanged under guarantee without question. Well done all at Olivia's trains!

Mark , Norwich - 22 May 2017 - Five Stars
Ordered a Bachmann Class 105 DMU with several custom modifications including Olivia's sound as well as cab lights and an assortment of passengers and 2x Drivers. The completed model arrived on my doorstep within 5 working days and was absolutely perfect in every way, including the packaging. It was impossible to detect that the model had ever been opened up at all and every sound and lighting function worked perfectly, straight out of the box! I am delighted with the products and services which Olivia's Trains provides and I would unhesitatingly recommend this company to any discerning modeller.

One if not the best model railway shop I have ever visited. Knowledgeable, reliable, quick,efficient. Everything you need in terms of how to go about installing & running DCC. The staff are fun, engaging so plan to be there for an hour or two, because it is just too much fun talking to the boss about trains & model railways.

Dave , Christchurch, Uk - 02 May 2017 - Five Stars
Since my first purchase from Olivia's Trains they have been the people I go to first for all my locomotive purchases. I have bought numerous locos from them - mostly weathered and sound-fitted - and have also sent locos purchased elsewhere for modification by the Olivia's team. Their service is excellent and very efficient and they have a selection of stock to rival any other supplier I've come across. The team at Olivia's have also been great at answering questions and offering advice, which is not always the case with some other retailers I have used.

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.

Chris , Coulsdon - 29 Apr 2017 - Four Stars
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.

Maurice , Crowthorne, Berkshire - 25 Apr 2017 - Four & a half Stars
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.

Adrian , Australia - 21 Apr 2017 - Five Stars
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.

Graeme , Australia - 21 Apr 2017 - Four & a half Stars
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.
