We started in a dank basement about 20 years ago under different ownership.  About 10 years ago Ron took over and not only got us out of there but also started what is now The Hobby Smith, a full service model train store.  We carry quality rolling stock, DCC equipment and service, all the tracks and track codes, scale scenery and buildings. Our staff specializes in the latest information, techniques and services for model railroaders.  We offer discounted advance reservations, discounts on muliti-product purchases and full service DCC and repair shop.

Here at Hobby Smith we are Ferroequinologists and we're here to help.  From the points of a turnout to the tip of a modelled mountain we have the latest technology and expertise to bring your dreams to fruition.

Quality, Knowledge, Service.  That's Hobby Smith
