Why purchase from Train Sets Only?

  • Because the business stakeholders are heavily and directly involved in the day-to-day operations, you can rest assured that your orders will receive the attention they deserve. We will go the extra mile to ensure your shopping experience is a pleasant one from start to finish.
  • Train Sets Only offers very competitive pricing. While you may find an occasional website offering lower prices, we believe our level of customer service justifies the price difference. Before deciding to shop elsewhere to save a little, we suggest you compare the competitor's Better Business Bureau rating with ours.
  • Train Sets Only is located south of Chicago, Illinois. Because of our central location within the continental U.S., shipping transit times (even via our standard ground shipping option) are kept to a minimum. A large percentage of orders are only in transit for one or two business days. See the chart below for a more details on transit times.
  • Also, because of our location, we are very near the majority of our suppliers. In fact, we typically receive our replenishment/special order stock from our main suppliers the day after we place an order with them.
  • We are a Platinum Walther's Dealer. Any model railroad item that you can't find on our site can still be added to your shopping cart via our Walther's Catalog Item form by referencing the Walther's part number for that item. Alternately, if you can't find the item you are looking for, you can contact us directly via phone or email. We have and will continue to add items to our site based upon customer requests.
  • Orders from each of our primary model railroad suppliers are placed nearly every business day of the year, which means that our inventory replenishment/procurement occurs very quickly and on a continuous basis.
