What a shop,I drove over from Eastbourne and wasn't disappointed. I went over there with the intention of getting a 1/76 British Gas Transit van and came out with am armful of goodies as there is so much variety of different stock. The owner was very quick to offer assistance and left me to my browse and my leisure, I would recommend this shop as they stock a lot of different manufactures products so you have a good chance of getting what you need.

Brilliant little shop! It very cramped in there, but alright. You have to move a bit carefully through the shop, to not knock down anything. But it's not bad, it just shows the vast amount of items they have in stock. They have a very large selection of model trains and cars, both British and European. I have been there twice now and so far I have spent quite a lot of money but at the same time got a lot for it. Especially Herpa H0 trucks are very affordable. The staff are very nice and helpful but at the same time not annoying. Very good balance between ignoring and annoying a customer. When you enter the shop, you are greeted friendly and offered assistance. If you decline, they will let you browse without bother and when you do have a question, they won't hesitate to help. Card payments are accepted and they offer a loyalty bonus card. They also have an online shop, which is very helpful if, like me, you live a few hours away.

An excellent long-established and well-stocked shop with friendly staff only too willing to help even when the shop is busy with many customers vying for assistance.
It covers an excellent range of railway products including road vehicles (which aren't always so well covered these days) and have been able to obtain short-supply items that others could not. The shop also makes for a good browsing experience - you are almost guaranteed to find something to buy!
Furthermore the shop runs a loyal-card scheme which is most welcome.
It is easy to access just off the A27 (from the east turn right onto Manor Road at the first roundabout after the Adur Bridge /Old Shoreham Road traffic lights); I've always found space to park. Lancing station is within walking distance.
