Over 25 years of mail order and retail
|Friday, December 19, 2014|
I am quite pleased with the quality of these items, and the special sale price of $21.50 each was most agreeable to my Scottish heritage - value for money indeed! Let me just say that in the 10 years or so that I have been purchasing my model train needs from you, you are far and away the best hobby shop that I have ever encountered. D. Moat, Almonte Ont.
CHRISTMAS & NEW YEAR's HOURS|
Due to health concerns in the family I am restricting our store pre-Christmas and Holiday hours. The store will be closed from December 22nd to 26th. The store will be open Saturday the 27th and Sunday the 28th and then closed until the first weekend of our annual sale in January. ( see below )
ANNUAL BROWN BAG SALE
Every weekend in January we will be giving 20% off almost everything in the store, including items that already have a sale price. The discount does not apply to magazines, brass or consignment items. Orders for out of stock items will be given a 15% discount. Items already on sale at suppliers do not qualify.
REGULAR BUSINESS HOURS
Closed every Monday,Tuesday & Wednesday -- Open Thursday, Friday** & Saturday from 10-5, and Sunday from 12 noon-4:30
**Please note that the store will be closed Fridays at 3 pm so that I can get to Customs to pick up incoming shipments.
Recent Consignments and Purchases
We have recently acquired a substantial book collection, mostly Canadian, over 260 titles. Please contact us by email and we will forward a copy of the list to you by return email. Note these books are not available for viewing at the store as there is no room on our bookcase shelves. We are also working on 3 estate collections at the moment and have in excess of 400 pieces of used rolling stock, 90 buildings, and 20 steam and 25 diesel locomotives, many in Canadian livery. These are being put out in the store as time and space permit. Just arrived are about 90 kits from Train Miniature, MDC Roundhouse and Accurail. From the same estate is a nice selection of Canadian brass.
SUPPLIERS and SERVICES
We deal with Walthers on a weekly basis ( we consolidate orders during the week and send them in on Sunday. They are available for pickup or mailing the following weekend ). We send orders to Horizon every Wednesday for Athearn, Roundhouse/MDC and Intermountain products and receive them by Friday as well. We can give a one week turnaround on your order if it is in stock at our suppliers. If you see or hear about something new we can get it for you or we will take advance reservations.
We are active sellers on EBAY and have been expanding our Ebay store. I encourage you to check it out on a regular basis as there are a number of excellent buys available, from Walthers, Proto and Athearn. Many of the items we list in our fixed price sales are out of production models we get through our estate purchases; and store listings are surplus stock and items acquired from our suppliers at reduced prices. In some cases, store listings are 20 to 40% of suggested retail. Click on the Ebay logo above left to go to our current auctions. In addition, please check out our Ebay store listings for fixed price items.
