The Toy Box, March

the toy boxAnother town, another model shop discovery. For literary reasons, I visited March in Cambridgeshire last week and wandering around the town, found "the toy box" just off the main street - 11 Station Road to be precise.

It's not a big shop but does stock a range of Bachmann and Hornby trains. There are a few model railway plastic kits and accesories too beside some Peco track. A general range of plastic kits and scratchbuilding materials are available although not a huge one. Finally, Revell paints, brushes etc are on sale from a very well stocked rack.

While not a big shop, it's nice to see it there. If I were local I suspect that it would be my second favorite shop in the town after Julies Bakery.

Note: The shop name and decor have changed since Google took the photo below:

This is my home town and my very first model kit was purchased from there.

I think it was called Toys and Sports at the time, but don't quote me on that. Me and my mates spent many a happy hour building airfix, revell and italeri kits thanks to that shop.
