Ian , Cheshire - 28 May 2014 - Three & a half Stars
A welcoming shop not far from the main a46 trunk road (5 minutes) so worth diverting for if travelling between leicester and newark. Mostly secondhand but items in a number of gauges and I can imagine a lot of different items coming in regularly. Worth a visit but watch out for sparse opening hours.

Robin , Southwell, Notts. - 16 Nov 2013 - Four Stars
This shop is well stocked with products from N scale up to G scale, and it has loads of second-hand stuff in various gauges too. The chap behind the counter was very welcoming. He says that his stock is constantly changing. It’s easy to think it isn’t there if you go by google maps etc. (And presumably sat-navs) using the postcode. It is actually just east of the junction of highgate road and wellbrook avenue, so don’t give up as I almost did. A worthwhile diversion from the a6, a46 or even the m1.

Malcolm , Coventry - 13 Oct 2013 - Four Stars
Staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. stock prices, DCC fitting service & repairs are very reasonable. buying a number of items together generally gets a small discount. if you don’t see ask (They have loys of stock in drawers)
