caboose hobbies A Visit To Caboose Hobbies

DENVER (CBS4) – The trains are always running at Caboose Hobbies in Denver, a place where they’ve got everything the hobbyist could want.

CBS4 Critic at Large Greg Moody found an expansive set of model trains and some fun surprises on the track displays inside the store. Watch his complete report from March 2012 in the video clip below, which took place right before the start of the 2012 Rocky Mountain Toy Train Show:

“They’ve got every locomotive I’ve ever seen, even the old-timey stuff,” Moody said. “There are entire towns you can put together. And there is all kinds of rolling stock in every gauge you could ever imagine.”

You can get into the hobby of model railroading for a little bit of money or a lot. Moody found some G-Scale live steam engines that cost $5,000 apiece.

“It’s always free to look, but I dare you to stop there,” Moody said.

    Caboose Hobbies is the best place in the world for Model Train Stuff. I used to live at that place when I lived in Aurora. I now live in Hay Springs, Ne and I hope to plan a road trip back to Caboose Hobbies is the near future. Thanks Greg for such a wonderful segment!

    Can I just say what a relief to find a person that really knows what they are talking about on the net. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people must look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you’re not more popular since you definitely possess the gift.
