I was looking for some help with HO problems and left a little disappointed. Didn't really notice the displays as there were no operating trains while I was there. The one display was nothing special compared to others I've seen.

As far as train stores go in 2017, this one has a decent selection of a variety of scales. I found some things to buy in HO, Z scale, and books. Friendly service. Nicely laid out and easy to look at everything.

Enjoyed this look at toy trains through the decades, especially Lionel Corporation's contributions to WWII and the enjoyment of play, no matter how old you are!

This is a train hobby store connected to the owners small museum ($5 charge-worth it). While there is some items for all gauges, the store appears to focus heavily on O and G gauge. A wide selection of rolling stock, locomotives, track and buildings. The...More
