Roundhouse stocks many prototypical industry building models and railroad books to aid in learning about these and to help in building a miniature railroad layout.

Model railroading helps the modeler to acquire and hone skills in woodworking to build layouts; plastic working and metalworking skills to construct smooth track work and buildings; electrical skills in signaling and control of trains; scenic work skills in presenting the layout in a desired setting; and all of the mechanical/electrical/electronic skills to build a miniature world to the modelers specifications - while learning how the real world prototypes are constructed and function.

Roundhouse stocks collector books and catalogs of electric train equipment - including catalogs as early as the 1940s - to assist the collector.

Train collections are growing as both a rewarding hobby and as an excellent investment in spite of stock market fluctuations and an ever-changing economy.  Many of our regular customers have an astounding amount of knowledge regarding the vitality of their train collection investment and they find that Roundhouse continues to offer than excellent return for their money.  Train collectors can feel good about their operating enjoyment acquired from their investment.
