But been going here for a long time. Jim is always a happy chap, what he doesn't know about trains isn't worth knowing. A smile and offen a brew will await you. Cheers locoshed.

As an old railway modeller this shop is like a breath of fresh air as there is never any pressure to buy and there is so much stock it would take you a good couple of hours take it all in.More than just a railway shop though,also carrying diecast,kits,DVDs,VHS,books and every thing else you can think of for your modelling hobby.PLUS Free magazines at the door so you have somewhere to recycle your magazines and a free selection to meet your reading needs.Nice one Jim..

Absolute top-quality service from Jim at The Locoshed, Manchester. The perfect model shop, Jim will always try his best to find a particular model you are looking for and if he doesn't have it (which is rare!) he will be on the lookout for one for you.

Fantastic place for model trains

Jim is the man to see, what he doesn't know about model trains is not worth knowing. Very friendly people and very reasonably priced, great shop, when fully functioning a great shop to browse around, see things you had forgotten about

Managed to find a very rare Hamleys express and they even held it for me while I sorted out finances, item arrived as described and looks like it has never been used, will definitely use them again as really wanna get hold of a blue flying Scotsman

Bought a rare item from Jim via eBay. Arrived quickly and well packaged. I was really impressed by the lengths he went to in together fixing an issue with the shipped product. He was tenacious and patient in getting it all sorted and making me a fully happy customer. Looking forward to visiting the shop in person when we are out of lockdown and can travel again.
