Our Story

In 2011, Midwest Model Railroad started with the idea of making this hobby more accessible to everyone. Since day one we have strived to keep our operating cost to a bare minimum and pass on those savings to you. As of this summer, 2021, we are succeeding in offering some of the best prices anywhere in the hobby, with one of the largest lists of new inventory in the United States.

Some great side effects of this goal have been the creation of real time inventory on our website and a turnaround time of just one day between purchase and shipping. We are centrally located in Kansas City, MO meaning orders to any corner of the United States arrive with in just a few days.

As you explore our store, you will find we deal in more than just model railroad. Board Games, slot cars, and much, much more coming with the new expansion, finding just what you are looking for is simple and efficient.

We're Expanding!... Again!

At 9,000 sqft Midwest Model is already one of the nations largest model train stores and we are not done yet

Construction has started today to add an additional 6,000 sqft of retail space to our store.  It has been a pleasure for us to meet everyone that has come to our store and we can't wait to meet even more and you come explore the 15,000sqft. This diagram (to the right) is a rending of the future store where we will carry even more than before including model rockets, and die cast cars. Also, we will have a larger N-Scale layout, and an HO-Scale layout in-store.

We have added Train Themed Board Games... and others too

What started as stocking railroad themed board games has slowly become a bit of providing what some of our community members have been asking for. While Model Railroading will always remain our primary focus we are in a place now that we can provide other hobbyist the same great service and opportunities that we have been able to provide to model railroading.

Railroad Themed Games include: Ticket to Ride, Trains and Stations, Trans-Siberian Railroad, Railroad Ink Red and Blue, Railroad Rivals, Ticket to Ride Europe and more....
