Caboose Hobbies to re-open soon
Posted by Rene Schweitzer on Monday, February 13, 2017 2:26 PM

The former Caboose Hobbies, now known as just "Caboose," is set to re-open in a new location (Lakewood versus Denver) on February 25.

Full address, new hours, etc. are availble on their website (scroll down and it's in a bar on the left side). We wish them luck.

They have been posting pix of stocking of shelves and pegs with product as they make final prep to open. Looks like they will be very well stocked.

I was heart broken when Caboose Hobbies closed.  I was a customer from the old store in downtown Denver, long before the Broadway store opened.  I watched several quality metro area train stores close over the years: High Country Brass, Mizel, Downtown Hobbies, Train Master, and the list goes on.  I am still amazed that any hobby shop that doesn't follow all the latest hobby fads (drones right now) can stay open.  I have watched their website(s) for new info, even stopped by the new place a few times.  I can't wait for them to open.  I have saved my hobby money and it is just for them.  I hope they are swamped when they open.  I'll be watching for the website to update so I can order from it as well.  I am in business and understand how hard it is to put together the plan.  Good Luck, you guys.  I'll see you on Saturday.
