Opened some months ago, the shop is an outlet for model-railways in all gauges, - slot cars, including Aurora, Tomy, Tycho, Scalextric, - die-cast road vehicles, eg Dinky, Corgi, Matchbox, - Mamod, - Airfix/Revell, - Meccano, etc.
Also railway and other transport books, magazines and videos.
A mixture of new and pre-owned - at present skewed to the latter but with stock from Hornby, Bachmann and Peco arriving regularly.

A very friendly owner who clearly loves the hobby. However I asked to look at the models behind the counter but was not allowed! It is like the owner does not want to sell the models. I came a long way and left disappointed with plenty of money I wanted to spend. A surreal experience.

Returning to the hobby after many years, I popped into Northfields Model Shop last week and was welcomed by the owner. With so much having changed in the hobby since I was last involved he spent a lot of time with me explaining and giving me advice. I took up over an hour of his time yet *he* was grateful to *me* for my time! He even waived the opportunity to sell me a piece of maintenance kit and suggested an alternative I may have in the garage already!
This is great unbiased advice and I will *certainly* be going back for my future purchases. This shop is a treasure for any rail hobbyist: friendly, un-rushed and unbiased advice. Here do you get this nowadays? And this is in London!
Owner sells new and second-hand, and said he will do his best to match the big on-line shops too if there is any particular loco I'm looking for (even told me the name of the shops, this is great honesty).
Northfield Model Shop will be getting my custom as much as possible, this type of shop deserves more customers.

Nice little shop that I first saw in the new year passing on the e3 bus, finally decided to go in my time off work. Great selection of kits and a few really nice ones from tamiya and academy etc. Only problem I could see was there wasn't a lot of space, but the owner was very friendly and knowledgeable and really made us feel welcome. Will definitely go back on my occasional days off to have a browse or a chat

People buy from people and the proprietor is so wonderfully enthusiastic and supportive of modellers ranging from outright beginners to the far more experienced. Nothing seems too much trouble and, in truth, this is what shopping should be about. Well, and I stress well, worth a visit.

An extraordinary aladdin's cave crammed full with models plus an extremely helpful owner. OO and N gauges. New and second hand. Sensible prices. Also very experienced in helping younger modellers. Close to northfields station (30 minutes from piccadilly circus).

Aladdin's cave of a store this one! Simply masses of OO stuff, new and secondhand. Quite a lot of other scales too. For example rummaged through three boxes of (New) farish and peco wagons today. Oodles of secondhand railway books and magazines. Huge variety of other toys and models. Dinky cars, aircraft, rockets, etc. Expect to spend some time here: not easy to find stuff on your own! You will need to ask for help. Shop owner a delight though. Especially helpful to youngsters and newcomers to the hobby looking to start out while saving some money. Bring a shopping list so he can find the stuff for you! Pretty much the only model shop in west london, but luckily a good one. Cash only! Luckily cashpoint only a minute away.

A good old-fashioned shop selling a bit of everything, though I should mention a good 3/4 is second hand. Aside from model trains, there's some toys, magazines, miniatures and who knows what else amongst the many boxes and shelves. Shopkeeper is knowledgeable and willing to engage in idle chit-chat with the customers, and when I was in there even recommended another local shop to somebody asking for some metal sheet as he didn't have anything suitable.

I have visited this shop since the end of 2012. It was and is a wonderful find. The owner is very encouraging of anyone showing interest in model trains, building train sets and plastic modelling. A fantastic place to wander in!
