In July 2015, we moved to new, larger premises with easy, free roadside parking, at 54 Hamil Road, Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire ST6 1AU.

We sell a wide range of items for your model railway including Hornby, Bachmann, Peco, Dapol, Graham Farish, Heljan, Gaugemaster, Lenz, Metcalfe, Ratio & Wills, Woodland Scenics, Faller, Noch, Thomas and Friends, Expo Tools and more! We also sell Scalextric, Airfix and balsa wood. All new items are sold with a full manufacturer's warranty.

We work hard to provide a rapid, first class service at competitive prices, which makes buying from us a trouble-free and pleasant experience.

We sell only first class, brand new products through the website, each with a full manufacturer's guarantee. In the shop, we also sell pre-owned items: please contact us regarding current stock.

Other services include weathering and decoder / sound decoder / lamp fitting.
