Model Train & Railroad Hobby Shop


THE TRAIN SHOPPE All aboard! The Train Shoppe has pulled in to the Gardner Village station. Consider this your ticket to ride, whether you're an avid model railroad enthusiast or you simply want a fun escape from the ordinary. So much about this shop makes it unique. For one, it's the only hobby store left in Salt Lake County that’s 100% dedicated to model railroading. It's safe to say, they know trains! They’re experts at track plans, the various train sizes and types and finding the hard-to-find. Another aspect that makes The Train Shoppe special is that it has always been owned by customers. It's a rich, tight-knit history resulting in a supportive and passionate train community. Between the current owners and employees alone, there's more than 100 years of combined model railroad experience. It’s clear they conduct business from the heart with tremendous love for their craft.

Model railroading is a diverse hobby that speaks to those interested in trains (of course!), as well as those who like to paint, build, and get lost in the magic that comes from creating a miniature world from the track up. Plan your trip to The Train Shoppe at Gardner Village and enjoy the overhead train layouts, the vast assortment of products and even trackless train rides throughout Gardner Village. It's a destination you won't soon forget!


If a ticket to year-round fun is what you seek, it’s time to hop aboard at The Train Shoppe Family Fun Center!

Bring the family down to our indoor facility for a day of fun and laughter. Thanks to our token-operated rides and games, it's like taking a trip back to simpler times. Watch the bewilderment and awe on the faces of your loved ones as they control the velocity and whistles of one of many miniature trains. Take aim and test your abilities at the old-west fashioned shooting gallery. Take a spin on the colorful merry-go-round or bounce around on one of the rocking horses. The fun continues with the family favorite; panning for gems in the water mining sluice!

Do you have a little one who loves trains and is celebrating a birthday? We have reserved seating and both indoor and outdoor activities, with prices starting as low as $10 per participating guest.
