   Tacoma Trains & Hobbies

TACOMA TRAINS & HOBBIES is a brick and mortar retail store located in the historic PROCTOR DISTRICT of Tacoma, Washington.

Our business began  in 1985 as a N SCALE model train mail order business with an international customer base.

Wishing to better serve our immediate model railroad community , we opened a retail store in 1992 at Freighthouse Square in Tacoma.

The business grew quickly requiring more space  and we were  fortunate to relocate to the Proctor District in 1994. The model train departments were expanded ( about 80 % of our business) and we added plastic models, rockets, Thomas The Tank Engine,  Pinewood Derby and other hobby items.

We strive to offer friendly and knowledgeable service , while offering quality products.

Thank you for visiting our website and we look forward to seeing you at our store.
