Karl's Trains is an awesome shop to deal with. Always makes the customer number one! Bends over backwards to satisfy your needs. Has a great selection of trains and has items no one else has. I highly recommend Karl's Trains... you won't be disappointed!

J C General Hobby Surplus Outlet
An excellent shop with a great selection, especially of Aircraft kits; especially of Eastern European manufacturers (Special Hobby, Mirage, Azur, etc.), and of classic hard to find kits. I make a point of going in whenever I'm in that part of Virginia. They also have an ebay store, which has most (but not all) of their stock

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.

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.

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.
