This is one of the premier hobby stores in the entire country. Very helpful staff and a great supply of HO and N scale products. All the supplies you could need, rails switches, structures and scenery.

Yeah, its a train store but with lots of train lay outs that dads and kids enjoy. Friendly staff too. Good restaurants nearby, so if you like toy trains and food, this is the place.
