    Re: idea for new shop on Main Street USA!

    I think a hobby shop is an excellent idea. They could sell buildable models of different parts of the park, in addition to the trains. By the way... they already sell a Disneyland train or three.

    There is the standard touristy gold train (which is probably WDW, actually), then there are the monorail sets, and finally, there's the (z?)-scale train that goes with the Olszewski sculptures and is made to run on the track used with the Main Street Station piece.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Re: idea for new shop on Main Street USA!

    I love this idea. It would be great to see a few toy train models running around the room. A couple of suspended tracks above would be cool as well. Great way to get little kids and "adult" kids interested in this hobby. I can only imagine.

    Re: idea for new shop on Main Street USA!

    I'm a model railroader and I would love for there to be a train shop. I think it would be great to get an HO scale model of the various stations in the park so they could be set up in a nice display.

    I would love to see unique stores return to DL. Maybe not the wizzard of bras shop, but BP (before pressler) shops were unique around the park. you might have to look for a certain Mickey Mouse watch in Toontown or somewhere else. It wasn't just carbon copy shops and merchandise throughout the park.

    A train shop would be cool too.

    I think it's a good idea.



    Thanks for the inspiration, Mini.




    It got me to finally post a thread for my main street shop idea.

    I think it's a great idea. Very appropriate, and it would be very fun. No reason to limit the shop to this guage or that, they could have all sorts of sizes. And as others have mentioned, they could have park-specific and movie-specific props as well. You could basically have your own Casey Jr. Circus Train at home.

    Great Idea! I do also think main st. needs to go back to the way it used to be and a train shope would be a grand start!
