Stack Talk – Vol.4 Issue 10


We are now open at 342 Lincoln Ave. in Lancaster!

After months of planning and quite a few days of blood and sweat, we are now settled into our new home at 342 Lincoln Ave. in Lancaster. We are only a few short steps east of our old location – closer to Memorial Dr. (Rt. 33).

Our official ribbon cutting event was held Friday, November 11th. We had a number of loyal customers and members of the Hocking Valley Model Railroad Club in attendance.

We have nearly tripled our old size and have nearly 8,000 sq. ft. of retail space.

What are we doing with all of that space, you say? Well, most of it is occupied by retail stock. We were quite crammed in our old space. In addition to the stock, we now have the HO Hocking Valley Model RR layout on display in the front of the shop, and the Soggy Bottom Boys On30 layout on display in the larger part of the shop.

There are lots more large aircraft on display from the ceiling. And we have a big space where all of our train sets can be viewed. We also have the “Hangar” where we can conduct clinics and seminars, or you can just hang out and spend some time. There is a kid’s area with a Thomas play table available for use. And the “Canteen” where you can usually find coffee, a cookie jar, and on weekends, some fresh popcorn.

Enjoy the photos below and stop in and see our new space when you have time.
