Our History

Established in 2018, Little Train Shop was founded by Callum who was originally selling second-hand models on eBay as a way to make some extra income.  With a rapid increase in positive feedback and a growing reputation for the level of personal service Callum was offering, customer's started asking for unique orders that quickly grew the hobby into a business.  Coupled with influx in demand, along with the closure of Launceston's only dedicated hobby store, Callum was inspired to open an online store dedicated to the model railway hobby. 

Little Train Shop's vision is to provide the experience of a 'Brick and Mortar' Hobby Store right from the comfort of your own home whilst still offering the personalised service you would receive from a physical store.  Today we live in a digital age and many people find it more convenient to buy their supplies online early in the week and have them in time to work on their layout come the weekend.  However, this method removes the personalised service of getting support, tips and advice you normally would receive in a store.  Little Train Shop breaks this barrier by providing hints and tips, tools to transform your layout, free advice, and general support.  

Little Train Shop's passion and friendly service enables us to bring you the items and service you need, and the best price possible.

What Customers say about us

KEVIN from Western Australia
"I have bought from most model rail suppliers in Australia and overseas, and might I say your store rates among the best. Your service, stock lines, pricing, shipping costs and prompt delivery, thank you. For instance the Peco Insulfrog turnouts, most Australian retailers have yet to hear of them ... well done Tassie."

BOB from Tasmnia
"Good range of products at competitive prices .... especially for British train modellers. Friendly & efficient service plus convenient & free parking. All the ingredients .... along with online purchasing facilities .... to make for a successful business. Cheers from one very happy customer!"

FRANK from Queensland
"There are limited model rail shops up here let alone in Australia but I must say, your online store is very easy to use and holds an impressive collection. I really appreciate the free shipping option as many stores won't even deliver to remote QLD. Thank you once again"

PETER from Northern Territory
"Your service is impeccable and first class. I really appreciate the hand written note you send with every order, it makes your store feel closer and that I am dealing with a human being."

BRAD from Western Australia
"WOW. You guys are amazing. Thank you for my [sic] locomotive, I have it running in now. Thanks for the hand written note and the speedy service, I was shocked when it arrived as I wasn't expecting it for another week. Your prices are cheap man, and much more affordable than some places. You'll be hearing from me again soon (if I can manage to convince the wife to let me shop more)."
