Situated on Broad Street in the town centre and staffed by our friendly volunteers, it is well stocked with an extensive range of model railway supplies, railway books (both new and used) and children’s toys. Operated by the Pontypool and Blaenavon Railway Society, all profits made go towards supporting our railway!

The only model shop in the valley, our enthusiastic volunteers are always happy to welcome you and help you explore the latest products from manufacturers including Hornby, Bachmann, Heljan, Dapol, Peco, Gaugemaster etc.

We also stock a range of limited-edition private owner wagons selected from prototypes from all over South Wales, with others from Dean Forest, Bristol and Oxfordshire. All members of our Railway (both Company or Society) also receive discounts on purchases – another good reason for joining us!
