Chuck's Trains
Chuck's Trains has more N scale than any shop I've been to in the South. Combine that with the great customer service and you have a winner!! You want a negative? I wish I lived closer!

P F & S Railway Supply Inc
One of the largest collections of trains in Washington. This is my new place to buy trains. The owners are helpful and nice to interact with. It's in the middle of the wheat fields on a dirt road and spent 3 hours looking at trains, track and accessories.

Pegasus Hobbies
Just started to rebuild an N guage layout after 20 yrs in storage. Eric in trains is the man to see. Has offered suggestions as to what I might do rather than just take my money. Prices are not cheap but are not out of the ball park. I would rather send a penny or two more and have what I need in hand as opposed to on-line ordering. And again, Eric offers a lot of help. I trust him and that is a big thing. Exchanges are not a problem with him. I did experience a slight problem with a woman there when I tried to return a publication. It was done, but I was told it was not their policy to accept publications as returns. Never read anything like that or was never informed of it. Hence, the 9 rating instead of a 10. Will always go back to this store until they give me reason not to. 1st class!!!!

I Love Toys and Trains
I am not an avid model railroader, just looking for something around the tree for the holidays. While they are difficult to find, it was worth the trip. They have many model trains and sets at around market price. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable. I bought a Lionel Polar Express and extra track. I would like them to carry more "villages" for the holidays.

Rudy's Hobby & Art
This Hobby Shop and Art Supply Store is indeed a blast from the past. If you have an opportunity to visit the neighborhood Astoria in Queens, NY and have an interest in models, railroads or art, be sure to visit Rudy's. The owner (Marv) is super nice and knowledgeable and you can browse to your heart's content. Hours of operation are limited Wednesday through Saturday 12pm - 6:00 PM and Cash Only but a fantastic experience well worth the trip.

H & R Trains Inc
Largest train store in Florida, second largest in U.S. They carry all scales, many manufacturers and even have a cool kids section with Thomas and Chuggington. Now also carrying Lego train sets. New owner took over in 2016 and the store keeps getting better. It's worth the trip from anywhere in Central Florida. I purchased a starter HO scale Thomas the Train set for my son and G scale circus train set for the around the Christmas tree. Great Marklin and Lionel sections and a full-scale repair shop. They also carry Bachmann, Ahearn, Walthers, Atlas, Kato and more. Staff will always special order an item for you. Layaway is also available with 1/3 down rest due in 60 days. You can also shop on their web site. Mostly new, but the do carry some "second time around items." A garden train runs outside on a mature layout on Saturdays. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Prices have come down since new owner has taken over.
