If this is not a scam, it is close. Terrible try train set. Some random train stuff for sale. Nothing really very informative nor interesting. Do not get your hopes up.

If you like toy trains you would probably enjoy it. My husband does and he did - I don't and I didn't.

We went here because my husband loves anything trains. It has a nice train set up. It looks like a nice place to take young children and where the local train club might meet.

Kids love it and the kid in all of us love it too. It hasn't got big trains. It's local with model railways. It's great for kids.
