Robert , Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands - 24 Aug 2018 - Four & a half Stars
Bought an N gauge layout from Hobbyrail, Barrie spent a few hours with me at the shop going though the wiring to check it was ok and making sure my loco ran ok.

Peter , Lichfield - 03 Jul 2018 - Five Stars
I recently acquired an N gauge set that had been dismantled over 10yrs ago with 5 engines, Barry spent over an hour with going through the basics and testing the engines for me. Have had trouble procuring the IPA as chemists no longer sell it, got some off Amazon. Once I have completed the base support units I shall be back V. From Lichfield

Popped into Hobby Rail today Jan 4th, even better now as the premises have been extended, and nice to see Barry and the gang. Highly recommended with bargains galore.... Nice to be able to chat with enthusiastic people. Looking forward to many satisfying visits during 2018

Well worth a visit now that they have moved into larger premises in the centre of sutton coldfield. Barrie and patrick were very friendly and helpful and I now have a shop to visit in the west midlands where I can get my "Bits and bobs".
