"It just stopped" is a familiar complaint when a customer brings a model train to us but we have a repair service for OO and N gauge and wherever possible we get them going again. If the train is too far gone, we will tell you before spending money on a lost cause. We are a Hornby authorized Service agent. We also repair model cars of certain brands.
If you don't know what to buy someone as a gift, we can offer suggestions based on the age and ability of the person concerned but if that fails we can offer gift vouchers in various denominations for them to come in and choose themselves.
Our ultimate aim is to be able to say YES to everyone who contacts us and says "Have you got?" and very often we can. But our space is limited even though its packed from floor to ceiling with stock, and if we haven't got something we will try and get it for you or advise where you can get it.
