We always welcome visitors to our extensive retail outlet, The Engine Shed, if you would like to come and visit us. We are open seven days a week and on most bank holidays, and are very easy to find by both road or rail.
In our retail showroom, you will find all your favourite models, from Z to G Scales, and our friendly staff are on hand to help with anything you might need.

The store is opening again from 12th April 2021. We are open every day of the year except Christmas Day and New Years Day.
Shop Guidance Covid-19 (Updated 8 April 2021)
Hopefully you have being keeping well during this difficult time. As per government guidelines we are pleased to announce that our physical shop will be re-opening on Monday 12th April at 0900 and operating our usual opening hours thereafter.
We have retained the previous changes to our store to best maintain social distancing and to protect you and our team. Please follow the signs and respect the one way system from our car park into the shop.
Please be aware, however that due to issues some of our suppliers are experiencing during this pandemic, our store is not as fully stocked as normal. We do ask that you check online at www.gaugemaster.com first if you require a particular item to see if the stock you require is available.
We are having to limit the number of people in our shop at any time to 10. This means you may need to queue at peak times. Everyone (young and old) are welcome but we please ask people to minimise groups to allow others to enter the store.
When you enter the shop, you will be greeted by a member of shop staff who will ensure you use the hand sanitizer provided and every group will be given a sanitised basket. Please wear a face covering unless you have a specific reason not to. We ask that you browse the store following any directions provided and social distance as much as possible. Once you are ready to leave the store, please make your way to the till and pay for your goods. We ask that all transactions are undertaken by card and via contactless payment if possible.
We look forward to seeing you all again in due course.
