Hornet sells other hobby items as well as MRR products. A good source for British model railway enthusiasts such as myself. Also sells used products and take trade-in's. Good, friendly customer service. I especially find Hornet helpful for finding suitable paints and kit-bashing products. Also a offers an excellent repair service, especially for older HO locos. I think this is an excellent, traditional "mom & pop" type hobby shop!

I like these guys as they strive to give you the best and offer 10% off what ever they sell and you get what the call rail bucks back on orders in return knock a little extra off you next order.

However,a old shop reopened that had been closed due to the owner's health problem..He even moved to a new location..
What I like about this shop the owner will work with you on prices.

I plan on going for a look see.

I've been doing business with Ron's, for close to 28 years. Mostly model railroad, HO, N, Lionel, On30, some G scale.
Some plastic kits, cars, boats, planes . Conversation is just part of the business.
We always learn far more from our own mistakes, than we will ever learn from another's advice.
The greatest place to live life, is on the sharp leading edge of a learning curve.

Walt's Hobbies I don't know the address. It is on Rte 30 just about 1 miles south of Caton Farm Rd. in Crest Hill, IL
Ed's Hobby Warehouse 11152 Southwest Hwy, Palos Hills, IL This guy has a huge store, and a HUGE selection of any hobby item you may want. His HO section is so large it is displayed on layered walls that roll to the side to show the next layer. He is good for conversation, sells consignment items, and has a few birds in the store too. His prices are great!!

Al's Hobbies, as mentioned by Viperman is good too. They know their stuff, but they are pricey and the selection is rather small.
Don't follow me, I'm lost too.
Back when I had a hobby shop I could go to without driving 60 to 80 miles,
