Model Rail shops in North Norfolk ?

Our sons has asked to go to Sheringham this year for our family holiday to be near the The North Norfolk Railway @ Sheringham.
It's a few years since we visited the area but I do recall a specialist model shop down an alleyway at the Market end of town and the Post Office always had a good selection of Hornby stuff ... does anyone know if they still exist ?
Thinking about it many sub post offices in the area used to stock a selection of Hornby or other railway models as a side line to the stamps etc. That was some 30 years ago, many of the sub post offices have closed and those that remain don't even stock a smile :-( Why did these sub post masters carry this particular side line ?

My guess is the 100% markup. Even if they sold only a few items each month it was a useful extra income.

There used to be a model railway shop on the platform at Sheringham but this was a couple of years ago so I dont know if its still there - was quite good for bits and pieces if I remember. There was/is a shop in th emain street of sheringham too which sells railway stuff, but I have to say that I wasnt impressed with them at all.

last time I was in Kings Lynn there was a decent model shop down one of the streets off the main shopping area. Had a very good range of stock at the time, about 3 or 4 years ago if my memory serves me right. Badger.

Good range of stock held from all the usual suppliers, including some limited-run items.
Nice bloke owns it - named David Boldero I think.
Very helpful, and will get in anything that he doesn't have when you call.
Worth a call to the town to weep over what's been done with the station site and to get some of the best fish 'n chips in Norfolk.

You will be hearing from our Newcastle solicitors Hadaway, Hadway & Shiteman for breach of the Old Jokes Act 2003 for use of the this joke :)

That was an actual slogan approved by Norfolk County Council. Suffolk came up with "Suffolk and Proud"!
Like the furniture shop that advertised "Our prices are Sofa King low."

Not THAT bad; "Suffolk 'n good" more accurately describes 'em, despite their location.

It is still there and seems to try to carry a wide-ish range of stock in a small shop with (inevitably) not a lot of customers out of season.
