Good for dollhouses and miniatures. HO, O, and G scale trains. Many RC items. Train section is not as large as Dollhouse section. Large selection of RC planes and cars. Open mon - sat. If they don't have it, they will gladly order it for you.

I'll start off by saying that this place is amazing! That being said, this store requires you to sign up for a free membership (Supposedly to help prevent theft) before you can step inside. If you don't feel comfortable with giving them your driver license/id then don't go there. If you don't care, then you will be amazed at the amount of stuff in the place. Granted, the train selection isn't the best but it's worth a visit just to see all of the layouts and the interactive accessories on display. The halloween section is particularly cool too. This place also has a wide variety of slot cars and R/C stuff as well. As far as trains go, they have a great selection of modeling accessories (Like scale people and buildings) but the actual train accessories left something to be desired. Each gauge's parts are located in a different area and there are only a few select parts from different manufacturers (E.G. Track, rolling stock). I'm no model train expert but I had a good time for 2 hours. Prices were a little high (Slightly above MSRP) for most items in the store. Customer service was fine as they just kept asking me if I needed any help while I browsed the store for over an hour. When I finally asked for some assistance they were helpful but were unable to answer all my questions since I was trying to do so something out of the ordinary with a train product for which it was not intended. No fault of theirs for not knowing the answer to my questions. Overall, a cool place that is definitely worth a visit, but not the best train store out there. Go check it out at least once just for the eye candy.
