There's a decent shop at Aylsham's Bure Valley Railway.The Sheringham North Norfolk Railway doesn't have much though in either 00 or N gauge;it's more of a souvenir shop really.
Still not sure if it's much of an answer to the question though :?

SDR has now got a new layout on oo only now. It is still undergoing modelling but is a working whilst under construction layout. better than the old one as well. Shop is good and holds a vast amount of stock and does have a small selection of very good second-hand items. I use it quite a lot since my local model shop (mind The Gap) closed due to ill health. Will not use the model shop in Hyde Road in Paignton, as I don't like his attitude. Plus being a member of a local model railway club I also get some discount but only on new items at the SDR shop.

hello TEP 60 do I detect a touch of the trans Atlantic colonies in your terminology. :D Are you planning a trip and looking for the shops at or close to stations worth visiting? try this site for Model shop addresses (it has a map style locator for those not au-fait with UK counties.

Or are you from Europe, but unsure of the difference between UK ans US terminology?
