Tristate Magazine Article 1998

model railroading Our goal is to provide our clients with affordable custom model railroad layouts, equipment and materials at the most affordable pricing available. From new to gently used Model Trains, we provide a one source resource in buying, selling, or building your model railroads. We deal in acquiring, selling, or building of model trains in N scale, HO scale, S scale, O scale or G scales.

We obtain the majority of our trains from private collections or closed hobby stores. We have a tremendous variety of items which are constantly changing. While we would like to be open to the public our shop is exclusively for custom model railroad construction. However, we offer all of our products for auction on our eBay store. Why don’t we have a store? When you factor in that nearly 75% of model railroaders purchase supplies and equipment for the best prices available (on-line) we feel that by eliminating the overhead we pass those savings on to our customers.

About our operations.

We have a fourty thousand square foot design and fabrication facility located in Northern Kentucky. Our spacious shop allows staff to assemble large and small layouts while also building and painting custom structures or equipment.Our staff members are “Old Heads” in railroading offering years of experience in model railroading and Class I Operations. Our facility can produce custom model railroad layouts with exquisite scenery and detail for realistic budgets.

If you receive an item that is not in the described condition, you can always send back. We offer full refunds, repair work, or will make an agreeable adjustment.

We do strive to make your experience with us as positive as possible and do everything we can to make things right and you are always welcome to return an item for a full refund. Please notify us within a week of receiving it if you have a problem.

We typically ship all of our custom model railroads ourselves. When it comes to the level of detail and time that we put into our products, we want to ensure that that item arrives as it did when it left our production floor. In addition, we can also have a moment to spend with our clients while installing the layout and also providing an operational overview. In addition, we can deliver in the Central United States as-well-as the West Coast and Canada. We own our own transport vehicles which also attributes to additional savings for our customers.
