Description

Olivias Trains is one of the UKs leading model railway retailers. We stock major brands including Hornby and Bachmann.


Company description
Olivia’s Trains comes from the name of my first grandchild, Olivia Sophie Smart, now aged 17. She was UK & Scottish Novice Ice Skater Champion 2008. She now has a partner, Joseph Buckland, and have just won the British Junior Ice Dance Chamionship for the 3rd consecitive year in Nov 2013. They now compete at Senior Level from 2014 and have achieved Lottery Funding, they train in New Jersey (USA) so watch out for the 2018 Olympics. Olivia in her first international competition. Olivia & Joe competing in the NRW Trophy 2014 - Senior Free Dance I started selling my Special Loco’s with Sound in 2004 and the only platform I could use was Ebay and, as with Ebay you require a name to list and Olivia was the Star of the time, I thought it fitting to call my selling tag as Olivia’s-Trains. So that’s how we became Olivia’s Trains.
The only trouble is that we now have a grandson Liam and he wants the next shop (if there is to be one) to be called Liam’s trains. That may confuse! # We are specialists in certain fields starting with of course Sound. I have a Railway background so I do know a bit about Diesel/Electric Traction and have Driven & Instructed quite a few in my Railway Career. The other items we pride ourselves on, is our Special & Limited Editions. We go to great lengths to get as many of these we can. We resource people who say they can do special Loco’s and my favourite answer to those of you who say they can is give me examples and we’ll sell your Loco’s under our Umbrella.
We offer Commissions on any Loco you fancy even if it never existed!We Pride ourselves in the Friendly Service we offer both over the phone & in person. We really like to put a face to a name and we welcome callers to come and spend time with us, try out locomotives and get exactly what you want. You can have a cup of Tea or Coffee with us during your visit and there’s a Café right across from the shop if you want a bite to eat.
