About Us

The Model Shop has been established over 30 years and is a leader amongst its peers.

The Model Shop is a British outline railway modellers’ paradise, selling everything from nuts and bolts to ready to run train sets, and handrail knobs to control systems. The Model Shop is a unique shop run by railway modellers for railway modellers.

We sell everything to complete your model railway layout, from plastikard to trees to back scenes and control systems, as well as the latest releases from Hornby, Bachmann, Vitrains, Dapol and Heljan.

If you cannot see what you require in our online shop, please email us: it just might not be on the system yet!

We do try to be as accurate as possible with descriptions and running numbers, but sometimes errors do creep in - please let us know if you spot one.

We are sorry, but online orders may not be collected from the shop.
