We really do enjoy the model train business and we really want you to be happy with what you buy and have an overall great experience. We obtain the majority of our trains from private collections and defunct hobby stores. We have a tremendous variety of items and it is constantly changing. All of our older Prewar and Postwar items are cleaned, tested, and repaired, if needed, by our three repairmen and supported by our parts inventory. Our hours of operation are Monday - Friday, 8:00AM to 4:30PM EST, excluding holidays. We are not open on weekends. If you send us questions after 4:00PM EST, your question will more than likely not be answered until the following business day.
