As a model railroader for over a decade, I know my trains, and I know the prices. Ridge Road Station prices are off the wall. How do they expect to survive and compete against online stores, where I can get free shipping or discounts on used items if they charge at MSRP for everything? Nobody charges MSRP! I used to buy my trains down the road at despatch junction in Gates, but they recently went out of business, and I expect because of the prices and ease of ordering from your computer.
Ridge Road Station's staff is rather ornery. I bought a 2-6-0 bachmann locomotive a while back that had the smoke unit. I know Bachmann trains are on the unreliable side, so I asked the staff person to test it, which he did. I asked him if the smoke unit worked properly, in which he grumbled ""The kids these days"" and stormed off to test it. It's a toy store for heaven sakes! learn to deal with kids!
If you want to buy fudge or Christmas trees, then by all means go there. But buy your lionel/scale trains elsewhere. At least it's nice to visit and see everything if you don't plan on buying anything.

This is my first review. I am so excited about the fudge I had, I am telling everyone. Not only was it the best fudge I've ever had, but the price was terrific! I bought a pound and a half for $12. The 2 I had with walnuts, the walnut fudge and the maple walnut, were generously proportioned with the nuts. The one that was a layer of chocolate over a layer of peanut butter was especially creamy. My husband is not a chocolate eater, so I bought him the vanilla fudge with a layer of raspberry jam in the center. Totally awesome! What I liked most was the creamy flavor opposed to the sugary flavor. They let you sample the flavors but that only makes you want them all!
