Trains4U is one of the largest Model Railway specialists in the east of England

Occupying a large 1800 square foot showroom spread across 2 floors, we offer thousands of products from over 80 manufacturers.

Trains4U was formed in July 2004 in response to the closure of the last Model Railway shop in Peterborough the previous year.

Owned by Father and Son Steve and Gareth Helliwell, the business opened with a small stock of Hornby, Bachmann, Peco, Gaugemaster and Fleischmann products in a 900 sq ft unit in Peterborough's St' David's Square trading estate.

Demand for our products and services was unprecedented and we quickly diversified into N gauge, DCC and slot cars, whilst expanding our range of suppliers to provide more models, scenic materials, tools and paints.

Our initial website solution soon became difficult to manage so we suspended our online service whilst our walk-in business rapidly grew and we soon filled our showroom to bursting point.

All of our railway rolling stock and our slot cars are displayed in large glass cases for easy browsing.
