Tucked in a back street and not east to find this is a little gem. The model railway section is downstairs and not always staffed so you may have ask to go down. Darren who looks after it is extremely helpful and a wizard at repairs and decoder fitting and testing. The stock is much larger than you might expect, and very comprehensive. Discounts are sometime available. It’s rapidly becoming my first port of call.
[Response: "Thank you Richard for your honest review, look forward to seeing you again soon at The Model Shop."]

John , Southampton - 06 Jun 2014 - Four Stars
An interesting, but difficult shop to find! However once I found it I was very pleased i'd made the effort. A quirky establishment with the model railways in the cellar! Limited headroom (I'm 6'3") made getting around a little difficult and there is not much space if more than 5/6 customers at one time. Staff reasonably knowledgeable however getting a deal may be a step too far!! Managed to pick up some wagons which I had been seeking out for a long time. Would visit again!
