Frequently Asked Questions

What gauge trains do you carry?
The gauge is the size of the trains and our most popular is the ‘O’ gauge with the Lionel train. We also carry ‘N’ gauge which is the smallest gauge we stock, followed by ‘HO’ gauge and ‘G’ gauge. ‘G’ gauge is also known as ‘garden railroading,’ and that’s big for people doing layouts outside with landscaping. Garden Railroading also works great inside restaurants, bars, and taverns.
Do you buy trains?
Absolutely! Part of our business is buying toy train collections. Whether it be one piece or a thousand pieces of a collection that may have spent over 30 years collecting, or just a few small train that you don’t use anymore, we travel all over and definitely buy trains!
Can you build me a custom layout?
Yes, that’s our specialty! We build our layouts from the ground up. We can do a layout from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars, depending on what the customer wants.
How long does it take to build a custom layout?
It varies on what the customer wants. We have some folks who want to build the layout as fast as we can, and there are some who want a very large layout and that takes us much longer. On average, a 30-foot layout will take us 7 to 8 weeks to build.
Do you repair trains?
About 95% of the time, toy trains can be repaired. We always asked, no matter what gauge it is, to bring their train in and let us look at it, and we can fix it. Especially if it is an ‘O’ gauge with the Lionel trains, parts are available for trains that are 100 years old! We always fix and even restore and refurbish trains!
