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.
