First time visiting , was looking around for a module shop as our grandson (5) got his first electric train set , and had been lucky enough to have uncles who saved their trains, needed to find some one who could give them a service and repair. Martin is an absolute gem , spent an enjoyable , informative afternoon and look forward to returning to collect the repaired engines .

Visited the shop for some advice as I'm just coming back to hobby after many years - Martin was very helpful & friendly and I'Ll certainly be back. He happily tested some old engines for me and while sadly they were beyond repair, I bought a replacement second hand HST125 set with three carriages and an second hand shunter for a fantastic price. There is very good range of engines and rolling stock available. This shop is highly recommended, less than 10 mins from the M1 with plentiful free parking behind the shops opposite.

Just popped in to have a look, and had a chat with the owner who is very knowledgable and helpful. Needless to say I left with some really brilliant bits and pieces. I have got an amazing amount of stuff for a stunningly low price!!!! I will certainly be going back again. Thanks very much

Spent a lovely hour in Martin and his lovely dog's company. Very knowledgable and friendly guy who is only to willing to help. Only went in for dcc clips and my husband and I came out with a beautiful loco, three matching coaches and a wagon and all at an extremely competitive and fair price. For what looks like a small shop the stock is massive. Martin offers loco repairs at cost and we were given a voucher for 10% off our next purchase. Well worth a short detour off the M62 or A1 and easy parking behind the shopping precinct opposite.

Martin was a very friendly, knowledgeable, fair shop owner. He gave me a fair price for all my Hornby railway trains and coaches and for all my goods carriages and misc items. I would recommend Martin to anyone that wishes to sell their train sets. I was delighted that all my set was going to a good home.

I called the model shop to enquire about selling my Grandsons collection of trains and was pleasantly surprised at the quick response and the very fare valuation I was given for the collection of trains and aeroplanes and the prompt payment.
I would certainly recommend this shop to anyone either buying or selling.
A great guy to deal with!! and overall good expierience.

Not just a shopping trip but a full experience! Like I suspect is the case for many customers, I was there to renew stock after a couple of decades away from the hobby, and I received good advice and a good deal at the end. I live abroad but I now plan a visit for every return trip!

Martyn is a very chatty guy and makes you feel like a valued customer whenever you visit. He is happy to talk about all aspects of the hobby (and life in general!) and his prices are very fair. Worth a visit for sure. Has a massive selection of 00 railways and scenery and also a good selection of 00 scale road vehicles. Don't be put off if the door is locked during opening hours - it is for security and a knock on the door gets you in no problem.
If you are travelling a long distance it may be worth checking ahead to confirm opening times.
