|We have a G scale layout that was built by one of our employees and it sits in the middle of our Train Sets Aisle:
|There are 2 large HO layouts in the store: HO layout #1 is quite old, but we are always adding to it:
|The other one is layout #2. It is too big to take a picture of in its entirety, so this picture is only of one small area:
|One of our O scale layouts is the perfect size to tuck into a den corner, it is one of our most popular because it has a personality all its' own:
|Due to popular requests we added the N scale layout built by the Caboose Hobbies employees and customers:

thousands of individual items, we
find it impossible to maintain an in store catalog, so we recommend the Walthers' catalog.
