There are a couple of Hobbytown USA's around; one in Pineville, and one in
the University area. They're ok, if you're looking for off-the-shelf
low-end products. Mainly RC stuff.
The best store I know of in the area is the Little Choo Choo Shop in
Spencer, which is just on the other side of Salisbury, about 30 miles north
of Charlotte, up I-85. www.littlechoochooshop.com They've got a wide
selection, and the staff are great.
And they're right across the street from the North Carolina Transportation
Definitely worth the drive!
In the Queen City, no. There is a good one in Spencer (next door to
Salisbury)called the Choo-Choo Shop on Main Street across from the former
My experience is they do good work, knowledgeable, at a fair price.
For once I actually get to help somebody on here. Imagine that!
