Here’s What Just A Few Of Them Have To Say
I want to thank you for doing a spectacular job upgrading my Kline American Freedom Train Gs-4 engine. The MTH proto 2.0 upgrade was a perfect choice. It has added a hole new dimension to running my trains! The engine sounds and control are fantastic! The whistle and crew dialog sounds are unbelievable, they are so real, you think you are next to the egine. I never thought it could be this much fun running a layout. I took DVD movies of the train in action, and watch them on TV all the time, it is fantastic!!!!!!! I recommend you to all my train buddies and show them what their missing. Once again thank you! (Great Job)
Just a word of thanks for the great job repairing my lionel locomotive. Several other people told me it could not be fixed . I was ready to throw it out until jeff at the train cellar told me about you i was so glad you could fix it as it is one of my favorite locos. I have since bought two others in for repair and i am very satisfied with the work you did on them. Again thanks very much. PS: The cost was quite reasonable
You repaired my MTH redbird subway car about 6 weeks ago (thru the point pleasant store). It is running great but the traction tire came off, are you going to be at the Edison show tomorrow? If so I’ll bring the engine, keep up the good work.
I just received my Lionchief Plus CNW steam loco. You guys did a great job as it is running perfectly. There were some problems as initially there was no sound because of a bad sound board which was replaced by you, but when I received it back from you the first time the sound worked but the engine would not run. Another board went bad possibly in transit or CCP poor quality control, but you told me , "you stand by your work", and there was no charge for the return repair. It is a pleasure to do business with you and one day I would like to pay a visit to your store. I recommend you to all my fellow model railroaders.

A long way to travel, 35 miles, but worth the trip. Found some good buys at reasonable prices.
