Train shops near Scranton, PA
Posted by hbgatsf on Saturday, July 29, 2023 6:04 AM

Ok, as suggested in my other thread, I'll ask here - what are the best train and hobby shops near Scranton, PA?  I'm planning a trip to Steamtown and will check out shops if they are worthwhile.

My pressing need is for Evergreen and Plastruct parts so a general hobby shop would work if well stocked.

I have never made my trip to the Northeast, so I have never been to Scranton.

When I was planning the trip, many people mentioned Bernie's as being the must-stop-at train store in the area.

Yes, I did a Google search.  I was hoping to get a recommendation from someone with first hand knowledge.

Google is not as helpful as you would hope. You will end up at a lot of cottage warehouse industries that just do mail order or have eBay outlets. That can be a frustrating waste of time.

As for Evergreen a few years ago I  bought a large shoebox full of Evergreen items on Ebay  in unopened bags enough for a lifetime

Dimensional styrene is one of things I think will always be more-or-less available. However, if a massive collection shows up for a good price, I will certainly buy it.
