First time in there since starting model railways. I took a couple locomotives that had problems, hoping they would help or at least advised. That was what I was promised on the telephone couple of days before. However, the 'train man' was rude, insulting of my locomotives just stood they laughing when I asked a question or proposed a solution for confirmation. "I dont know... " he laughed. I did buy a decoder, purely as other local model shops were out of stock, but I surely wont go back. I could have become a very good customer, I visit my most local shop regularly, but he will never know.

This is a very nice shop, stocking a big selection of RC toys, plastic kits and model trains. The staff is very friendly and very helpful. I recently had an item put aside for me to pick it up. When I went there, traffic slowed me down so I arrived after they would close, far later than I intended. A very nice gentleman stayed in the shop and left it open for me so I could still pick up my item. This is how you get me as a regular customer!
