Esther's Hobby Shop
Largest selection of N scale around and I mean by a long shot. I've found stuff here I've never seen on the internet and didn't even know existed. I drive from 2 states away to shop here. Generally has some used equipment in stock as well. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Be prepared to spend some time just shooting the breeze. They have a nice N scale layout downstairs but if you're tall, watch that you don't bump your head on the way down. Stocks other scales as well as plastic models too. Located in town with on-street parking. Be sure to take some coins to feed the meter.

Trains & Things
Trains and Things specializes in O Gauge trains primarily manufactured by Lionel and MTH. They stock the latest from both companies and have a vast inventory of new used trains for sale. They have an operating layout with multiple trains running at once. You can open new items and run them on the test track if you wish. They are very knowledgeable and always willing to chat. Plenty of accessories both new and used including trackage, buildings, scenic materials and parts. They also do repairs. Courteous and friendly - a great place to shop for your trains. And they always discount off of list prices! Located just over the 95 bridge from Pa into NJ at exit 3. Ample free parking.

Ron was very accommodating with a transformer issue I was having with my model railroad train. I could not have asked for a more honest and helpful person. I will always purchase trains from him.

P F & S Railway Supply Inc
One of the largest collections of trains in Washington. This is my new place to buy trains. The owners are helpful and nice to interact with. It's in the middle of the wheat fields on a dirt road and spent 3 hours looking at trains, track and accessories.

Pegasus Hobbies
Just started to rebuild an N guage layout after 20 yrs in storage. Eric in trains is the man to see. Has offered suggestions as to what I might do rather than just take my money. Prices are not cheap but are not out of the ball park. I would rather send a penny or two more and have what I need in hand as opposed to on-line ordering. And again, Eric offers a lot of help. I trust him and that is a big thing. Exchanges are not a problem with him. I did experience a slight problem with a woman there when I tried to return a publication. It was done, but I was told it was not their policy to accept publications as returns. Never read anything like that or was never informed of it. Hence, the 9 rating instead of a 10. Will always go back to this store until they give me reason not to. 1st class!!!!

I Love Toys and Trains
I am not an avid model railroader, just looking for something around the tree for the holidays. While they are difficult to find, it was worth the trip. They have many model trains and sets at around market price. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable. I bought a Lionel Polar Express and extra track. I would like them to carry more "villages" for the holidays.

Rudy's Hobby & Art
This Hobby Shop and Art Supply Store is indeed a blast from the past. If you have an opportunity to visit the neighborhood Astoria in Queens, NY and have an interest in models, railroads or art, be sure to visit Rudy's. The owner (Marv) is super nice and knowledgeable and you can browse to your heart's content. Hours of operation are limited Wednesday through Saturday 12pm - 6:00 PM and Cash Only but a fantastic experience well worth the trip.
