    Greetings all
    We are about to relocate, July 1, in Raleigh NC. Other than Tom's Train Station in Cary, are there any other good shops within reasonable distance? TTS is very impressive, but it's always nice to have alternatives.
    Also, is there any sort of N-gauge club type train nuts in that area? Thanks for any info.

    I have Gil...nothing but the Hobby Lobby or Hobby Towne. Been there, very little selection.

    I live in Charlotte and travel to Durham every once in a while...I've been looking and the only places I've seen listed in the phone books are the ones you already mentioned. (One of these days, I hope to visit some of the stores in the Raleigh area too.) There is a GREAT Lionel store (out of a home) just east of Greensboro...they also carry some HO and very limited N, and even some garden RR diesels...the store is called Covered Wagon. There just isn't too much of a store selection around the North Carolina area (unless someone knows where they're located...and if so...let me know!)
