Crafty Hobbies is now the largest model railway shop in the Furness area.

Our stock ranges include Bachmann, Hornby, Farish, Dapol and Peco. Due to space restrictions we cannot stock every item from every manufacturer, but we usually try to keep new releases in stock along with some old favourites. If you require anything we don't have, we can order it for you, saving you the postage and the worry about how the postman will treat your new purchase.We have also listed the makers that we don't normally keep in stock, but are quite happy to order for customers who require them.
