Back in the late 80s and late 90s I visited a train/hobby store in PA north of Philly that was close to the river.  Looking at a map today I'm guessing it was near Croydon.  

In fact I sold some electronics boards (TAS SAW boards I think) to someone on this forum who worked there.

I'm headed up to Nicholas Smith Trains today and was wondering if this store I'm remembering is still open.

I remember going in the front door and having a huge selection of Lionel to the right side, going next door on the left where hobby/crafts were.

Anybody remember the name of the store and is it still in business?

I know it is a long shot but thought I'd ask.

Any other good multi scale train stores in the Philly/Del area to check out?

The other shops mentioned are both very good, but not close to any river.

(No river proximity mentioned with second inquiry of  ("...other good...").

Also, Doug's Trains on Philadelphia Pike in Claymont, DE.    Small store but has a wide variety of speciality tools, blades, drills, adhesives, fasteners, wood & brass shapes and new & used O gauge track  plus the latest OGR in the magazine rack.  Heavy stock of HO brass.  Bonus, it's only a half mile from the Delaware River.
