About Whistle Stop Toy & Hobby

Whistle Stop Toy and Hobby began as a dream. Frank received his first train from his Mom and Dad when he was just 18 months old. Memories of the sound of that first train whistle and the joy he shared with his family have been with him ever since. Frank has been collecting trains all of his life. For the past fourteen years, Frank has traveled around the country sharing his love of trains and attending train collector’s shows. His travels provided him with the opportunity to make many friends throughout the United States and to also amass an inventory large enough to open a retail store. Whistle Stop Toy and Hobby opened its doors May 1st, 2005!

Today, Whistle Stop Toy and Hobby carries many of the memory building toys of Frank’s childhood including trains, Legos, rockets, model kits, remote control slot cars and much more. We also offer birthday party packages.

Our primary goal is to create a place that families look forward to experiencing throughout the year. Through our picture window parents, grandparents and children can gaze at the magical Spring, Halloween and Christmas displays and have fun picking out special features of our train layout. In addition, it is our passionate mission to provide the absolute best and most personal customer service to each and every person that comes through our door from the 1-year-old customer to the 100 year old! We want to be a place that makes memories for a lifetime!
