William , Melton Mowbray - 10 Jan 2020 - Four Stars
A great little store. Has a large selection of N and OO gauge trains, rolling stock, track, and accessories. Store is very cosy, so would not recommend trying to take a stroller or wheelchair etc on in

I love this place. Loads of models and everything I want can be ordered. The staff have a huge knowledge in the field of railways. You need to visit this shop

Ron , Coalville - 15 Aug 2019 - Five Stars
Always helpful, great little shop, so much in such a well managed small space. We should use the few remaining model shops we still have or we we will lose them.That would be a tragdy

Michael , Leicester - 15 Nov 2018 - Four Stars
I have been looking for a proper train model shop for quite awhile in Leicestershire and came across a signal box in Anstey excellent shop and good prices and friendly staff

Malc , Thurmaston Leicestershire - 25 Jun 2017 - Four & a half Stars
Since retiring 12 months ago and getting back into model railways and having to relearn the hobby, THE SIGNAL BOX and its staff have been a massive help to me with advice and suggestions. Highly recommended .
