First time in there since starting model railways. I took a couple locomotives that had problems, hoping they would help or at least advised. That was what I was promised on the telephone couple of days before. However, the 'train man' was rude, insulting of my locomotives just stood they laughing when I asked a question or proposed a solution for confirmation.
"I dont know... " he laughed. I did buy a decoder, purely as other local model shops were out of stock, but I surely wont go back. I could have become a very good customer, I visit my most local shop regularly, but he will never know.

This is a very nice shop, stocking a big selection of RC toys, plastic kits and model trains. The staff is very friendly and very helpful. I recently had an item put aside for me to pick it up. When I went there, traffic slowed me down so I arrived after they would close, far later than I intended. A very nice gentleman stayed in the shop and left it open for me so I could still pick up my item. This is how you get me as a regular customer!

Referred here from the loco centre in wellingborough; friendly staff and generous with advice. I got some suitable tubing that cost £1.50 but they were happy to sell just that. They've got a wide selection of r/c models - I nearly bought a tiger tank but thought better of it - As well railway and model kits.

Great shop. Covers plastic models, railways and rc. Did decent range of aircraft model kits (My interest) from not only the more popular brands but lesser known ones as well. Good stick of tools and accessories, glues paints etc. Opened a sealed box for me to look in. Decent sized shop, friendly and helpful staff with on-street parking outside. Well worth a visit. Still use brown paper to wrap things. Magic!
