Just met Bob and John last week; both great guys to talk with! Bought post-War rolling stock and accessories, left a 681 Steam Turbine to have a broken screw replaced and asked tons of questions, with great answers to help me build a layout for our grandkids to play with when they come over. Even went back this week to purchase Plasticville buildings I didn't have. Know I will be returning many times in the future.

Karl's Trains is an awesome shop to deal with. Always makes the customer number one! Bends over backwards to satisfy your needs. Has a great selection of trains and has items no one else has. I highly recommend Karl's Trains... you won't be disappointed!

J C General Hobby Surplus Outlet
An excellent shop with a great selection, especially of Aircraft kits; especially of Eastern European manufacturers (Special Hobby, Mirage, Azur, etc.), and of classic hard to find kits. I make a point of going in whenever I'm in that part of Virginia. They also have an ebay store, which has most (but not all) of their stock

Esther's Hobby Shop
Largest selection of N scale around and I mean by a long shot. I've found stuff here I've never seen on the internet and didn't even know existed. I drive from 2 states away to shop here. Generally has some used equipment in stock as well. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Be prepared to spend some time just shooting the breeze. They have a nice N scale layout downstairs but if you're tall, watch that you don't bump your head on the way down.
Stocks other scales as well as plastic models too.
Located in town with on-street parking. Be sure to take some coins to feed the meter.

Ron was very accommodating with a transformer issue I was having with my model railroad train. I could not have asked for a more honest and helpful person. I will always purchase trains from him.

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.

Hobby Works - Laurel
Not focused on the same subjects as other hobby works stores - This one has emphasized wargames and general gaming items over kits and hobby items but is worth the time if in the laurel area.
