My favorite. I've been buying and selling from and to The Hobby Smith for years and it's far and away my favorite model railroad in Portland. Best N-Scale selection I've seen, and I've always been treated fairly. Highly recommended.

The Hobby Smith is my first stop in model railroading supplies and railroad books. The owner and staff are all friendly and the owner is willing to special order details parts and kind of off-the-beaten track kits for me when I ask.

Come

I have been in this store a few times and I will say that it has great inventory. I was in this store recently on a Saturday with my son as we are looking to have fun with this hobby together. My son and I were looking at a $4.25 piece of atlas flex track, just touching, being delicate, not bending or even picking up. One of the fine people in this store proceeded to yell DO NOT TOUCH THOSE TRACKS PUT THEM DOWN at my 6 year old son. Not exactly a nice way to treat your customers interested in getting into this hobby. So I would say this.. If you don't mind possibly being yelled at for looking at the inventory don't bother going in this place. Find another establishment that welcomes customers and newcomers. Apparently the person running this place doesn't need your business. Which is a shame cause it is a great hobby and I think people need to start welcoming in the younger kids in to the hobby..
