Tony's Trains Of Rugby (formerly Barby Model Rail)

Post by kebang »

My daughter will be visiting me in March. In anticipation she has been shopping for me. She made a personal visit to Tony's Trains where she purchased a new loco, (OO Bachmann 2-4-2 Tank Engine). She said it was a marvelous shop, full of all sorts of stock. The owner was extremely helpful & accommodating, demonstrating the loco running. She's highly recommends the shop and will be returning there this week to see what else she can bring to the Philippines for me!

Hi Kebang; this would be https://tonystrains.com/ is that correct?

Of more benefit: How did your daughter learn about Tony's Trains? Happened to be walking down the High Street? Told by a friend? read a Railway Modeller in the hairdressers etc?

At a higher level than "finding a good store" is "Finding out how one finds a good store".

Thanks, Chris

I visited the website and saw the loco priced at 85 quid (RRP 145 quid). So I called my daughter and asked her to visit. She was very impressed, her exact words were that if I could visit I would think I was in Heaven!
