Brilliant shop! An absolute gem of a shop that has everything for your railway modelling needs no matter what scale you model in and at great prices too. I've been popping into this shop for over 30 years and it never disappoints. A welcoming atmosphere and a friendly chat guaranteed every visit. Very highly recommended indeed!

I was in scarborough yesterday and took the opportunity to visit the shop. It may be small but it has got plenty inside. Great choice of sets, locos, accessories. Owner very friendly, helpful especially my query on layout lighting. Bought several items with prices on a par with most other retailers. Will certainly call again.

Was on holiday in filey and visited this shop on the 5th of June. What a fabulous shop stocked with lots of model railway items and definitely the best I have seen in a long time. The owner jeff is very helpful, approachable, has sound knowledge of model railways and his customer service is excellent! He even tested the locomotive I bought to make sure all ok before taking it back to scotland. Jeff also does mail order so I am getting my list made up already! Definitely worth a Visit, a model railway shop as it should be! Keep up the good work jeff!

Made a 60 mile round trip to visit the shop today (Was visiting family in the area)to find it was shut, please update the data for this shop, it is not open everyday except Wednesday. Completely wasted trip, being stuck in terrible traffic and all for nothing. Is it any wonder model shops are disappearing from our high streets? Even on the door sign it only mentions being shut on Wednesday, okay if you have local knowledge of the shop, but just a waste of time and money for me. Wont even bother next time we are down here! [Response: "I'm very sorry that you made a wasted trip. As with any business, sometimes circumstances may arise beyond our control that mean we are unable to open during the advertised times. On these rare occasions we can only apologise for the inconvenience caused.
We take customer satisfaction very seriously. We do provide a mail order service should it be required. If you are making a long journey then you can always phone ahead and we will happily give you any assistance you require."]
