Excellent model shop for hunting out kits and OO/N gauge railway items, scenic materials and a huge range of Oxford die cast (Other brands also available). They can get a limited amount of O gauge from the Peco stable if asked and are happy to place an order for you. This is not a bargain basement shop, prices tend to be RRP, but you do find the odd bargain, even on locomotives. Comments about staff are a little unfair, this is a traditional Poole shop and like visiting other parts of the country, the quirks of the area are pleasantly present. I can say, I have never found anyone at the shop to be unduly rude, apart from the odd customer that is.

This shop doesn't advertise in the railway press, so I found it by chance. It's well worth a visit. The range of stock was comprehensive and the prices were competitive. They have all the ready to run stuff from the big manufacturers plus the hard to find tools, materials, kits and accessories that I expect from a proper model shop. Convenient, town centre location. Highly recommended.

the shop is fine good stock and great prices but the staff that work there are rude and blunt which ruined my experience not even a hello or good bye such a shame as the shop itself is really good it would helpful if they actually knew what they where doing. all the shop needs is happy enthusiastic staff which it currently does not have I am a young modeller and to be honest they weren't helpful

I popped in here briefly today for some inspiration after a meeting at Poole Rowing Club - what a brilliant shop, spoilt for choice - thanks, I'll be back.

Just to let people know that the business is still open. I visited this shop at the beginning of September 2015. I saw that the last time that the info was last checked was September 2014 and as a user of the model shop directory it is nice to know that there is regular updates to let people know that these model shops are still open to save people going on wild goose chases and wasting money in finding out that they are not open like I had looking for another model shop that is still listed but hsd been closed along while
