One of the other categories I’d like to cover in this forum is Train Stores. Where are the best stores in NC where you can go, run some model trains and purchase the one’s you like? There are so many in the state.
I’ll start with Dry Bridge Station in Mount Airy, NC. Mount Airy itself is a pretty special place. Throw in an awesome train store with a cool layout where kids can watch and run some trains and you’ve got a winner. Located right on Main Street in the middle of Andy Griffith-ville, Dry Bridge Station features all scales…O, N, HO, Z and many others. They also carry all the Thomas gear.
