Exclusively trains since 1974


About Us

An upholsterer with a passion for model trains, LeRoy Honetschlager moved to the Phoenix Valley over 40 years ago. Not finding what he wanted in a hobby store, he started his own.At the same Mesa location since 1974 and now owned by Roys’ son Tim, the store has grown from its’ humble beginnings to having the widest selection of model trains and all things railroad in the Phoenix Valley. 

If you’re in Arizona and trains are your passion, Roy’s is a must. In addition to being one of the founding members of The Arizona Railway Museum, Tim also has ties to the National Model Railroading Association and the Arizona Division of the PSR/NMRA. With a personal passion for history, Tim maintains an extensive library of information and artifacts relating to railroading in the Great Southwest.
