Thank you for stopping by!
March 4th, 2015 - We have completed an update to the Bachmann Steam loco listings as Bachmann made their 2015 announcements on March 1st. You will note significant price increases again. This is due to a price increase by Bachmann effective March 1st and of course, the continued decline in the value of the Canadian dollar. We suggest you check other listings when doing price comparisons, to make sure they are not using outdated pricing. Don't forget, if you use a major credit card to buy goods from the UK, your bank will currently be using an exchange rate of about 1.97 (and not the 1.92 listed in the newspaper or on an FX website).
December 10th, 2014 - Seasons of Steam 2015 calendar is now in stock. 12 pictures of steam trains from the UK preservation scene. C$14.95
November 26th, 2014 - We now have new stock of all the locos in the Thomas range. Prices are unfortunately up, but if you are looking for the Thomas & Friends locos in HO gauge by Bachmann, we have all of the models in stock. Check them out here.
November 15th, 2014 - We have today updated our OO and N scale road vehicle (diecast) listings. We have a very good, in stock, selection of cars, buses and trucks to help you enhance your layouts. You can see them all here.
