At a very young age, I was bitten by the train bug.  From my first wooden oval train set under the Christmas tree to my current layout, my fondness continues to grow.  Being a part of such an amazing hobby has brought me so many fond memories and takes me back to my childhood with every engagement.  The friendships built through the communities, clubs, conventions and meets are priceless.  The knowledge and experience passed down through generations, helps each modeler to grow and create in their own way.  This truly is the worlds greatest hobby.  

I wanted to share those experiences, joys, and memories by creating Online Train Shop.  Here is a place to not only model your passion, but to be inspired by a community of like-minded enthusiasts.  Thank you for being a part of such an amazing hobby and sharing it with others.  All purchases, feedback, questions, support and engagement is greatly appreciated!  


Keep modelling passion, and may all your signals be green!
