As far as price and selection are concerned, you simply can't beat this place. I am shocked to see any negative reviews on this shop. I cannot comment on their service department as I haven't needed any of my trains repaired. However, I have made many purchases from Bob and he has always been helpful to me in finding what I'm looking for. People from all over the country do business with this place for a reason and this place and its employees deserve 5 stars.
After a day of calling around to every train shop in STL, Schaefer is the only one with G-scale track! They don't have much G-scale items, but can order. They were SWAMPED when I was there, but that is a good thing! All be going there for all my g-scale needs!
I have visited this shop many times. I never come away empty handed! The small shop has an incredible variety of stamps and supplies. I specifically collect British Colonies and found that I will continue to return to this shop.
