      About Us

The Railroad Depot was established in 1975 to serve the needs of advanced model railroaders who were finding it more and more difficult to find the supplies they needed at their local hobby shop.

Many local hobby shops find it necessary to stock many diversified lines of hobby supplies: boats, planes, remote control cars, trains, rocketry, die-cast models, plastic kits, etc., etc., in order to satisfy the needs of a wide variety of hobbyists and to be able to pay the rent at the end of the month.

Unless the hobby shop has a large number of sales associates on staff, each with a different field of interest, somebody is going to get shortchanged when looking to get information on a specific railroad product or intelligently place an order.

At The Railroad Depot, we deal in Trains only...more specifically HO Scale Model Railroading and ANYTHING you'll need to design, build, and operate your railroad empire.

The following pages list two product lines in which we have a deep interest...NCE Wireless Digital Command Control and its compatible product SoundTraxx Digital Sound Decoders. We have been selling DCC since the standards were adopted by the NMRA at the 1994 Portland convention.

Many model railroaders who are interested in purchasing these products have more than likely seen them operate, have read up on the subject in the model railroad press and are now looking for a knowledgeable, reputable dealer from which to purchase their dream operating system. We hope you will find that The Railroad Depot IS that dealer.

We do attend many shows demonstrating Digital Command Control and SoundTraxx Digital Sound Systems. However, please be aware that a personal demonstration is available on request. Please contact us if this is your wish.

We intend to add more information to this website as time allows, so visit from time to time to see what's new.
