Called on my way back to yorkshire and will call again on purpose. Although small inside there is a huge amount of choice available of all gauges; I was also directed upstairs to the buildings etc. Area. No pressure to buy but I did. Owners very helpful with a cup of tea offered. Free Parking nearby as its on a main road. A great model shop.

The best, most friendly and helpful model shop i've been to. Incredibly well-Stocked, with british and european railway stuff. The guys will offer you a cup of coffee while you browse and not hassle you. I've given up going to two other shops in west yorkshire (Much nearer than this to where I live) where they always ask if you want to buy anything else when you go to the till. Keep up the good work arcadia!

What can I say that hasn't been said before. Has an excellent stock of european items - German, swiss, austrian ho scale and british. Always a coffee offered (hand made)& toilet available (full of overflow stock). Can haggle over prices and tim the owner will always obtain items he has not got in stock (providing available) Well worth a visit.

Wow! Massive stock well presented in european/us/uk styles and many different gauges. Friendly staff helpful in every way. Close to the tram stop and a small free car park next door - Could this be more convenient?

Arcadia is my prefered dupplier for model railway items. Massive stock and if by any chance its not in stock then tim will order it for you and give you a call when its in. Nice cup of tea too. only thing stopping me giving this shop a "Perfection" Marking is that it’s small and can get very crowded when busy, which it usualy is.

I visited arcadia models after alighting at shaw & crompton while travelling on the newly opened metrolink line from droylsden to rochdale railway station. Friendly very well stocked and presented shop. Enjoyed a cup of tea after the thirsty work of browsing through, choosing and purchasing N gauge items. Will certainly visit again the next time I am in manchester.

I found arcadia after looking round several shops in greater manchester and I must admit its by far the best one ive been to. The service is great as are the prices. Friendly and helpful staff made my getting back into model railways even more enjoyable. I will definitely be going back soon.
