Not in Bath itself.

If you have a car : http://boxtunnelrailways.com/

Plenty in Bristol too, if you don't mind getting on a train : www.modelclubs.co.uk/modelshops.php/Avon/1/1/

We will be in Bristol for a few hours from about 2pm until we take the last tour on SS Great Britain at 4.30pm & then on to the airport.

We will be taking the train from Bath to Bristol so are any of the shops in close proximity to the train station or SS GB ?

I don't know. Have you tried putting the various postcodes into Google maps ?

Depends how specialised your requirements are - I am sure there are regular toy shops that would have a small selection of mass market options

And I did see one advertising hand made wooden train sets - could be anathema to you or just what you want

Hattons in Liverpool could be what you are after.

Yes, a long way from Bath and Bristol, but they do mail order. ;-)

We have ordered from Hattons in the past. The reason I asked the question is because we will be visiting Bath & Bristol & my son would like to go to such a shop to browse.
