    All,

    This is to inform you , I am going to be moving Southwards -crystal river florida- in the next few months . I am curious if there are any L H S -Local Hobby Shops which sell N-SCALE along with N-SCALE Model Railroad Clubs in that Area ?

    Unless something has changed, there's nothing really close to Crystal River MRR wise. There's an old line well established MRR club an hour south of there in Largo (https://www.suncoastmrrc.com/index.html). They have a decent weblinks section to shops (https://www.suncoastmrrc.com/areashops.htm). About 20 years ago when I lived there I shopped HR Trains regularly, as well as Gulf Coast down further south in Sarasota. I haven't been to the Yankee Dabbler store, but he is a frequent MRR show attendee on the east coast and is a good dealer. All the other stores I used to shop are now Fallen Flags.

    Hi Tom,
    In another 7 to 8 years depending on how things go, we are planning on making the move to Florida.
    My in laws live South of Sarasota and I have shopped at the above mentioned Gulf Coast shop.

    Here is a video of the shop. A link to their web site is included on the YouTube page.



    From what I remember, they did have a nice selection of N scale.

    You planned on moving somewhere without checking for hobby stores and train clubs FIRST?!!

    This was all due to one of my three siblings being down there .. they bought the house for me before I actually had a chance to checkout the area!
