This is the best model train place in the SGV. All sorts of trains in a variewty of sizes. Perfect for beginers or people who have been playing with trains since they were a kid and are now retired.

This is the store to go to if you're at all interested in trains of all sizes. Not only do they have a selection of model trains that is the best I've ever seen, they have an enormous selection of books about trains and train collectables and a store staff to match.

Serious folks that know the railroad hobby know about this store! I make it a point to visit this store whenver I'm in the area, even if I don't need a thing.

The front rooms are crammed with model trains, landscaping detail, balsa wood for the do-it-yourself perfectionists, videos, magazines, and "railroadiana" of all kinds: signs (big ones), lanterns, collectibles, and hats.

It's a train lovers dream. You must check it out when in the area.

I personally have no interest in models or trains but the whistle stop is the first place I go when I need small parts in the area. They are very knowlegable (there are usually about three people behind the counter waiting to help you too) and I have better luck finding what I need than at the hardware store. I especially appreciate their real commitment to customer service, which is sadly rare these days.

Pros: service, selection

By far one of the best train stores in the Greater L.A. area, the Whistle Stop has an incredible display of various-sized trains running continuously. From the Marklin minis, all the way up to the "garden" variety, this place is your one-stop destination! They even have books, videos, and layout plans!

PROS: super selection, mind-blowing displays, professional staff
CONS: relatively short hours (but aren't all hobby stores that way?)

Sure this shop helps out the parents assembling a toy under the tree on Christmas morning. But it doesn't cater to them. These folks are serious about the railroad. The book section alone is bigger than the poetry section in most large chain book stores. And they can lay their hands on any volume. The front rooms are crammed with model trains, landscaping detail, balsa wood for the do-it-yourself perfectionists, videos, magazines, and "railroadiana" of all kinds: signs (big ones), lanterns, collectibles, and hats.
