All modelers have a life but what do we know of it. This podcast is as much about the people in the hobby of model railroading as it is about the hobby itself.
Having always been a fan of the long form conversational interview and having met so many interesting people in the hobby over the years we decided it would be fun to share their back stories with everyone else.
So come along with me, Lionel Strang and a strong cast of supporting characters as we discover how life intertwines with this great hobby of ours and helps to strengthen the fabric of who we are as individuals.

Welcome to Midwest Model Railroad

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, the hobby’s best customers. As of 2019 we are succeeding in offering some of the best prices anywhere in the hobby.

Some great side effects of this goal has been the creation of real time inventory on our website and a turn around time of just one day between purchase and shipping.  Also, being centrally located in Kansas City, MO means orders to to any corner of the United States arrive with in just a few days.
