I spent a few days in Aberystwyth last week and visited this shop which is still very much going and just as described by other, earlier posters. Lots of stock - particularly Hornby & Bachmann. Model railways only part of the business.

Still very much open for business. Plenty of railway stock in both N and OO. It's not that easy to see everything in there as there is a lot of stock. Not all railways either so worth asking if you need anything particular. Owner happy to let you look through all his boxes. Well worth a look if you are in the area. Prices pretty good too.

Please note that the albatross model shop in aberystwyth is still very much open, and the telephone number is correct - as I have today placed a telephone order for a couple of Bachmann dukedog engines (One weathered and one not) ready for my collection next week. The owner, mr morgan, does not use the internet himself and is not that keen on answering withheld telephone numbers, so that may be the cause of the 'confusion'? Nowadays, with the dominance of the internet for high value purchases, the little local model shops need all the help that they can get. That is why I use albatross models whenever I am in mid-wales on holiday.
