In July 2016, we will celebrate our 15th year in business. I personally have been collecting model trains for over 40 years, and wanted to take my hobby and turn it into a business.

Etsy buyers showed an interest in our products as miniature, doll house and wedding accessories, so we have expanded our line of products and custom items to meet those needs.

As we saw need, the airplane and aviation hobby has grown, allowing us to make display shelves / wall decoration airplanes too! This gives us a break from making our 110+ railroad and miniature items.

Our number one key to success is making sure our customers are always happy. We go out of our way to ensure low prices and prompt shipping at the best cost.

We have been featured on television( KD Country & Big Brother Canada), in magazines ( Martha Stewart Living Wedding Edition Dec. 2015 issue) and news articles ( The Derrick, Progress, Clarion News and local Newspapers) for all of our top quality products.
