Looking through my collection many of the price labels are still on the boxes and I can vaguely remember buying each item. I started buying track and rolling stock with my pocket money from toy shops like the Childrens' Shop in Orpington and later on I was a frequent visitor to Hobbytime of West Wickham. In London I bought a few items from Hamblings and Beatties. When I moved to Worthing I often bought models from the Engine Shed which later moved to Ford, from Hobbyhorse and Beatties at Brighton. I used to call in and buy models from places I visited like Pecorama at Beer, the Monkbar at York and the Cheltenham Model Centre. Now I am at Swanage I buy models from the Swanage Station shop or the Swanage Model Centre. I also buy a lot of items by mail order from Hattons, Kernow and Rails. I wonder if other members have any interesting memories of these and other shops.
