They call model railroading "The World's Greatest Hobby". But getting started can be a little bit daunting. We've provided this website as a place where you can quickly come up to speed on the ins and outs of scales, layout design, basic electronics, digital command control and other topics. 

Whether you are a train guru or a beginner, C&E Branchline Railroad Shop has the knowledge and experience to help you with your hobby.

Some quick tips for beginners... Start small and don't get overwhelmed. Take advantage of the incredible technology advances in recent years and look closely at using DCC technology. It vastly reduces the complexity of wiring a layout. Study the state of the art in easy to build foam core scenery. It's lightweight and not as messy as the old school plaster and newspaper techniques. Most importantly, have fun! Remember, it's a hobby! 

Don't forget - we've been here serving the Scranton, NEPA area since 1998  - and we love to talk trains. We're always happy to help beginners and pros!

One of the nicest things about owning a business such as this is that customers become your friends. We are deeply indebted to each and everyone of you, our customers, who have supported us throughout the years. Without you, there would be no C&E Branchline Railroad Shop - BestRailroadShop.com
