Special Notice

After 18 years at South Hills, Tom Staley and Naomi Jean Bernheim are retiring.

Tom and Jean would like to sincerely thank all our valued customers who have shopped with us over the past 18 years. You are the reason for our success.

On July 11, 2014 Tom and Jean will begin packing up remaining merchandise and moving to storage in their warehouse. Tom will be selling this merchandise at various train shows in the Raleigh area, such as the Train Collectors' Association and Neuse River Valley shows at the Fairgrounds.

During the time while merchandise is being packed, the store will be open for customers wishing to purchase any remaining merchandise. Discount levels will be posted in the store.
