I've been there twice. Well organized clean old fashioned style train store with new & used trains. Good prices & he is welcome to offers on the used stuff.

Did you know that guys who are crazy about trains are known as "foamers" because they can apparently get so excited when they see a choo-choo that they foam at the mouth. They are mostly pot bellied middle aged men whose wives (if they have them!) think they are nuts. I'm not knocking them because I'm one of them! Nor Cal Trains gets my recommendation too!

Whoops! I meant to say "Look for me down by the YARDS in Roseville!" I got so excited thinking about trains I started foaming and I couldn't spell! Woo-woo!

This shop is always a fun stop. The owner is very friendly and helpful. We have found some great treasures here and his prices are fantastic!

Love this place. John is always there to help out tremendously with whatever I need. They have a great assortment of vintage Lionel and Flyer trains, and for you HO guys, amazing buildings and scenery.
As a O 27 scale guy still holding out, I enjoy it immensely. JP
