I'm planning a trip in a couple of weeks to Niagra Falls. I will be driving from Toledo, OH to Niagra Falls - staying in US along Lake Erie (route 90 from Cleveland to Buffalo area). Anyone aware of any good hobby shops that sell HO stuff along the way?

Thanks.

Not a hobby shop that I know of, but I do highly recommend doing lunch at Quaker Stake and Lube. It's one of the first exits in Erie, PA on the north side of I-90. Truly a memorable experience!!

no ho track, :(
Yeah, your right he doesn't have an HO TRACK, but he sure does have a lot of HO PARTS AND CARS! I thought that was what tasman was looking for, i.e., and I will quote him, "Anyone aware of any good hobby shops that sell HO stuff along the way?" I think that Fantasy Raceway fits that pretty good. The wall behind the counter is full of HO stuff. Geez ......... there always has to be one somewhere. Why here?:rolleyes: pig

Roger is definitely still in business. I was there a few weeks ago and he had a good assortment of HO cars, some new Dash bodies and AW cars and older Tomy, Tyco, and LL in blister packs on the wall behind the counter. He also has trays of parts for AFX, Tjet, Tomy, LL, and other HO cars. It's not the neatest or most organized shop, but part of the appeal is digging around and finding stuff. He is closed Mondays and opens at about 3pm most days. Best bet would be to call ahead.

PS: I live right near Exit 53 (Buffalo exit) off RT 90 and have 100's of cars and parts for sale. If you are passing through and want to stop in, you're welcome. PM me for phone and directions if you are interested.
