Special Orders/ Bundles

If we don't have it, we'll find it for you!


Special Orders


-- Want to order 10 or 20 N&W coal cars, but we only have one in stock? 

-- Would you like us to create a bundle of items for you - for example, all that you would need for a 4'x8' HO layout, including benchwork, tracks, scenery, structures, locomotives, rolling stock, etc.? 

-- On a budget? Want to make a reasonable offer on an expensive item? 

-- Create your own train set! Pick out which locomotive and which railcars you would like to use. Add track and a power pack. We'll bundle it up and send it to you for a much better price than you could get by buying each item by itself. 


Give us a call at 757-904-9390.

Or, create a list of exactly what you need and send it to us at

We will do our absolute best to put together whatever your special order might be - often with special pricing and discounts.


For example, You might be thinking about creating an HO layout on a 4' x 8' table. You would like to order all the items you will need all at once, or you might want to do this as a gift to someone you know who wants to build their own layout. 

Here are the items you will need:


Track-plan including tracks and turnouts.



Ground goop.



Earthcoat paints.

Vegetation: grass, bushes, trees. 

Talus: small rocks.

Train set with Power source DC or DCC, locomotive and railcars.



Tool kit.

Step-by-step instructions.

We could put together an approximate list of all that you would need to build this layout according to your specifications - like what season will you be modeling, do you want mountains, valleys, creeks, rivers, cliffs, tunnels, a city, etc. We could bundle it up and sell it to you for a lot less than you would pay if you bought each item by itself.

We could even design a track plan for you using layout software. Or send us your scribbles and we'll make it into a nice track-plan for you.

We could even build a small N-scale shelf layout or a 3'x6' coffee table layout and ship it to you.

Let us know how we can help. We like to think "outside the box".
