Great service and prices! Excellent customer service and they carry everything! Buy local!
As always Chris pulls throw when it comes to the hard to find stuff for model railroading highly recommended
The great “old school” train shop that everyone has been looking for is Model Railroad World!!
The best selection and service in WNY. If you are looking for it chances are they got it.

Some of the best overall selection of N & HO scale trains I have seen in years. Customer service was outstanding; fast, friendly service. Will be doing business regularly, and you should too! Get off the internet and so shopping at MRW!!!read more
Chris runs a great shop! If you want something, he will hold it for you. If you have a question, he will do what he can to help you! For N-scalers, this is a fantastic place to go to! Has a ver great Ho selection too. He has building that he puts together and weathers them if you want to make a building a plug and play setup on your layout! For a train enthusiast like myself, I really love this place because you can talk about trains and get what you need for your layout. Great customer service overall earn an A++ from me.read more
I stopped in on the Friday after Thanksgiving, not a day they're normally open. I see great things ahead for this store. The owner has some innovative ideas to increase his value to the model railroading community! With 'brick and mortar' hobby shops becoming more rare, Model Railroad World has the potential to fill a gap for modellers in the Buffalo area!read more
lots of great stuff for your Model Railroad needs. Friendly service

Just as most old timey hobby shops or train stores are going the way of the dinosaur, here comes Model Railroad World. This place is a continuation of those that came before. I’m 45 this year so I’ve seen lots of them all come & go. My dad used to take me to Spoonely’s, Depew Hobby, Blasedel Hobby, the Stove Shop, Seneca Junction, K-Val, Tim’s Hobby Shop, Niagara Hobby, Field’s, & others that are all gone now. Model Train World is a classic small store where the owner greets you by your first name & you deal with him directly. Since the “soft opening” he had earlier this summer, the stock is steadily increasing. For the type of modeler that I & my son are, the place has the kind of things we like & if I was let loose off the money chain by the woman of the house, I’d easily blow the family budget there in an hour. I love, love, love HO kits, blue box, stuff, & non DCC locos. Chris also intends to get some O-Gauge going too so I’ll be back for that again. I also found a bunch of photos that I bought of local rail scenes once. Yesterday a lady came in while I was there & was promptly helped to find what she needed for a Xmas gift for her husband and treated nicely by the guys there. There’s a mix of new & old stock, assembled building kits, sets, & all different types of stuff. The only drawback for me, which is nothing against the store, is that I live an hour away so I can’t stop there as much as I would rather do if I was closer, but that’s my problem, not theirs...read more

Couldn't find Styrene sheet anywhere, so I called up Model Railroad World. When I got there, Chris cut me a sheet to my specifications on the spot. Good atmosphere, and seems like he's got some great inventory. Definitely recommend to any model makers!read more
