A real treasure trove, everything you could possibly require including expert and extremely helpful advice, the owner will spend time with you and is extremely knowledgeable, certainly worth a visit

Me again! This time, 24th August, I had recently bought a second-hand Black 5 on line from him but it developed a problem out of the box that was beyond my skill. He resolved it with his usual patience and I came away with more rolling stock as well.

This is just an update to say that I visited today (9th June 2018) and the business is still as it ever was. I was only there half an hour but there were two other customers in that time despite the relatively rural location. I bought two secondhand locos, both in very good condition. One needed some TLC to help it run better, which the owner did there and then. His test layout is a real boon in providing reassurance.

This is to confirm that Classic Rail / Just Words are very much alive and kicking because I spoke to the owner today having just received my latest purchase.

I visit this shop several times a year but not too often because I always seem to be come away with more than I intended! The web-site is good but only shows items costing more than £10 so many of the cheaper wagons, coaches, etc have to be seen to appreciate how much interesting stock there is sometimes. I strongly recommended families with young budding model rail fans giving the shop a try as some of the stock, while often boxed and in at least good but not always in absolutely mint condition, is always excellent for adapting or for those who enjoy playing with rather than just collecting: I do both. I always ring before visiting to avoid a potential wasted trip.
