Re: Hobby Shops in the Nashville, TN area


To echo what Mr. Mercante wrote, there really isn't "must visit" model railroad friendly hobby shops in the Nashville, TN area besides the one at the Tennessee Central Railway Museum.  The museum's hobby shop is small and tend to focus on the "southeastern" prototypes (catering mostly to HO and N).  There is a HobbyTown USA in Mt. Juliet (just east of Nashville) that has a small selection of model railroading equipment and books/magazines.  And, there is another hobbyshop around a hour's drive southeast of Nashville (the Dixie Flyer in Wartrace) that caters to model railroaders.  That store is located adjacent to the CSX mainline  (ex-NC&StL) that runs between Nashville and Chattanooga.


If you are visiting during the month of April, there are train shows on three of the Saturdays (April 11th @ the TCRM, a TCA "mini-meet" on April 18th, and April 25th in Wartrace).
