Call JD Trains before you go.  Jeff has a brick and mortar place but not there all of the time.  Lots of Atlas and GGD.  Steve at Trains Limited is there by noon; mostly newer stuff. Best post war is Traintown.  Ask for Bob.

Best train store is the buy and sell forum right here. New inventory daily and resonable prices and best of all I save on gas. Never have to leave my couch! No bad deals as of yet! But when I do shop at a real train store.I prefer electric train outlet in st. Louis! I go there every trip to st. Louis. Cant leave for less than a $100 bill. Most inventory I have seen in one shop. Bob only does three rail and once you get to know him he is a good man to deal with. Plus he is a authorized lionel service station repair and parts place also. It is like heaven on earth. My happy place as it were. Maybe its about time for a road trip.

Hi, thought I'd make one small correction...Bob does sell American Flyer by Lionel (2 rail) although He doesn't maintain much in stock.
