Family Train Center is a model train store where all are welcome. Not everyone may come in to buy, but some just want to see what a train store looks like and what we sell. We think that's great! Our first goal is to promote model railroading to the general public who may not have a knowledge of it. Trains have a rich history in our country. Other than the Pony Express, it is how our country began to transport merchandise from one location to another.
We also love it when kids come in who have not been exposed to the model train world. We consider it our duty to show kids who think that there is no life without their phone or other forms of technology that this is a great hobby that they can learn how to be creative along with adding technology in some areas in a train layout. For so many of our customers, this is a family hobby. They involve the kids and or grandkids.
When any of the train club members are in the store working on their layout, it is a great opportunity for beginners find out how to get started, what it takes to put a layout together, get questions answered and see what fun it is to work on a layout. You can use your imagination in a theme. We have seen several themes and they are all great.
Please take the time to look through the website. It's full of information. At this time, we are not able to sell through our website. It is meant to give an overview of the types of merchandise we sell. Please don't hestitate to contact us and ask questions regarding something in particular that you have seen or ask if we have something you are looking for.
