Fourth visit to Martin as helpful as ever replacing old stock for more modern or updated stock plenty to choose from and fair exchange prices good knowledge natter well worth 80mile round trip

Martyn will try his best to supply both good economical advice and wanted items. I had heard that he had ceased trading but this is obviously not the case and his shop remains full of stock, including some second hand. Will be calling in again.

Would highly recommend this shop, the owner is very friendly and helpful - he went out of his way to help my husband find what he was looking for. Very happy customer!

Superb assortment of 'pre-owned' British outline model railway. Very helpful owner who took the time and effort to 'fix' some of my problematic locomotives, for which he didn't charge. Well worth a visit. Only negative, needs some one to sweep the floor! Best model railway shop in the area.

Returned to hobby after 40 years, I visted on the recommedation of a friend and was able to park just around the corner. Excellent part ex. given and a large range of rolling stock to choose from. The advice I received on what I wanted to do was far more widespread and knowledgeable than I expected. Martin has given me plenty of food for thought. I could have spent a lot longer talking to him but he had other customers to deal with. Well worth the drive to get there, and will be visting again definitely.

We rung late one Saturday afternoon to see if we could get a replacement power connector . Martin then proceeded to tell us how to fix it to save us the time and money but we decided to make the journey to the shop anyway .We was glad we did as martin the owner is very knowledgable and friendly. The shop stocks a wide variety of model railway accessories and is well worth a visit!

Excellent customer service, was really happy to help us to find what we needed. Provided me with a great deal, be glad to come and purchase from you again.

Called for first time yesterday. Small inside but carries a large selection of new and second hand items. Very friendly and knowledgeable both about model railways and the real thing. Got a very good deal on two items I bought. Will certainly call again when in area.
