Thanks Ted for the correct information. I deleted my post. When I went there after Boyd passed I thought I was told that everything was getting sold by the lady there. Either they changed their mind or I remembered incorrectly. Well, whatever happened I am glad one of the kids is still in the hobby.

The Hazlet Train shop was one of my most favorite stores to visit. I remember the first time I went there. I was traveling around Hazlet with my friend Bill and we were looking for the store. We couldn't find it. We had no GPS back then but eventually we found it on that one way street. We gladly paid the $2 fee for the museum. What a great time we had there looking at the layout and the collection.

What is funny is that if you watch the video at least 3 times Boyd says "We don't sell parts!" but now his daughter is selling parts!

Yes. He did state, emphatically "I am not a parts dealer. I keep my parts for my repairs!" many times in that video.

Great video. Great shop.

I so wish I got to go there, living in NY I always went to Trainworld on Ave M and Madison Hardware. Even went a few times to the Roundhouse at the Croton North Station. But I would of like to visit Boyd Mason.

You would have loved it. Boyd had it set up like car dealership. The repair counter was separate from the cash register. He gave you a ticket and you went over to the cash register and then back to the repair counter with proof of payment and you received your repaired item. It was a really cool setup and of course there was the museum which had almost 1 of everything Lionel PW plus that fabulous layout.

Cincytrains(Steve) & Walmart Tom,

I will get back to both of you about the website and Dave’s address/contact info.

Thanks, Ted

Sent an email to both of you. He is in the midst of getting his repair shop up and running and the Roundhouse Repairs website was shut down for some time while he moved and building an addition to house the shop. Will go back up soon.

Ted
